Recommendations according to The Treatment Guideline method
This treatment guideline shows a set of recommended interventions that are actionable. They can be applied in family disputes, such as divorce and separation. We have drawn interventions that are beneficial for the wellbeing of disputing parties from international literature in the field of justice.
The recommendations on this page will be reviewed by external experts. Similar to recommendations in the medical sector, they will be updated accordingly.
HiiL’s prof. dr. Maurits Barendrecht, Tim Verheij, Isabella Banks and Manasi Nikam have developed the methodology for different justice issues. The Family Justice Catalogue that was created in Uganda is the first guideline that we put into practice. A team of local researchers and practitioners developed it. Local legal aid organisations are now starting to implement the Catalogue in their working structures. More countries will follow.
More research where interventions are systematically compared and evaluated is needed. Combining research with experiences from justice practitioners make more solid recommendations, which are tailored to the local context.
