In developing countries, on average 35 percent of GDP flows through the machinery of government – to produce government services, such as justice, health and education, and infrastructure. How governments manage the public sector – whether it is tax collection, budgeting, civil service or justice –matters crucially for development outcomes. In seeking to reform the public sector, many client countries express demand for know-how on “what works and why”.
Justice sector reform is typically done through nationwide reforms, which in most cases involve also changes to the Constitution. DIME will test several interventions to improve effectiveness of these reforms when they are implemented on the ground.
