Eye on Justice
Eye on Justice is a magazine published 2-3 times a year with the purpose of working towards greater transparency in the justice system by monitoring the day-to-day work of justice sector workers. Through close cooperation with lawyers, judges and other members of the justice sector, MUSAWA receives information about breaches of laws and international standards within the justice sector itself and publishes them so as to highlight wrongdoings so that they will not be repeated and appropriate steps can be taken to undo them where possible. The reliance on an extensive network as well as trust in justice sector workers is vital for the accuracy of this publication and took years to establish.
Through Eye on Justice, MUSAWA fulfills part of its role as a watchdog by increasing transparency in the justice system and holding actors accountable. MUSAWA is the only Civil Society Organization focusing on transparency in the justice system in this way.
