Justice Through a Gender Lens: Gender Equality Protocol for Judicial Officers


Justice Through a Gender Lens: Gender Equality Protocol for Judicial Officers is a practical guide geared towards fostering and improving gender sensitive adjudication in Trinidad and Tobago.

A project by the Judiciary of the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago, the Judicial Education Institute of Trinidad and Tobago (JEITT), The JURIST Project, UN Women, the Caribbean Association of Judicial Officers, the Caribbean Court of Justice, and the Trinidad and Tobago Association of Women Judges, this Protocol combines a social and historical framework, international treaty principles, local legislation mandates, and regional and local case law to provide key and critical instructions to ensure that each step of adjudication and proceedings, especially in particular types of matters, is analysed through a lens of equality and non-discrimination.

The Gender Equality Protocol for Judicial Officers also includes the Procedural Fairness perspective, based on the JEITT’s research, to ground and inform the fair and equal treatment of users of the court systems and to secure public trust and confidence in the justice system.
