This webinar will discuss the findings and analysis of a set of questions about perceptions of prosecutors included at ACJR's request in a survey of magistrates conducted by the University of Cape Town’s Democratic Rights and Governance Unit (DGRU) with Magistrates Matter in 2022, with their full report to be launched in early 2023. This follows DGRU and Magistrates Matter’s earlier 2019 survey of South Africa’s magistrate’s perception of their work environment. In addition to providing a baseline, the survey results provide both reason for optimism and cause for concern, as well as the direction in interventions which may improve the criminal justice system.
