The IJR 2022, like the previous two, has monitored how well states have done at enabling their justice delivery systems to efficiently provide required services.
The study, which is based on the most recent official figures from reliable government sources, combines previously segregated data on the four pillars of justice delivery—police, judiciary, prisons, and legal aid.
Budgets, human resources, workload, diversity, infrastructure, and trends were examined through the lens of each pillar in comparison to the state’s stated standards and benchmarks.
