Overcoming Judicial Accessibility in Times of COVID-19 and Beyond
Constitutional Court of Ecuador, Ecuador
ABOUT: Problems such as universal judicial access, social accountability, and judicial inefficiency have been chronic in Ecuador. During the COVID-19 pandemic, these problems were expected to aggravate; however, the Constitutional Court developed and implemented the SACC (Automatized System of the Constitutional Court) whose main objective is to address judicial accessibility, enhance transparency, and improve efficiency when delivering constitutional justice. The SACC is a three-phase mid-term project. The first is already implemented and made a significant impact during the pandemic, since it allowed citizens from diverse backgrounds to engage in the most important processes of constitutional adjudication. The other two phases are under development and planning, respectively.
