Stakeholders' Workshop on the Independence of the Judiciary in Africa

The independence of the judiciary lies at the heart of a well-functioning justice system and is the cornerstone of a democratic, market-based society that is guided by the tenets of the rule of law. In any democratic society, the judiciary is relied upon to decide cases impartially and independently free of any undue internal or external pressures and influence.
