Kenya Flag

In 2014, UNODC recommended that Kenya introduce Active Case Management (ACM) as a key measure to address the ongoing challenges (especially lengthy and unacceptable delays) within its criminal justice system in line with international standards and with the Kenyan Constitution.

In 2016, the ACM Guidelines in criminal cases (based on the then UK model) were introduced and under a pilot project the Guidelines were implemented in a number of courts to assess its workings and any likely challenges. The ACM Guidelines are now due to be rolled out across Kenya and training workshops are being designed and developed by the Judicial Training Institute (JTI), ACM Committee and UNODC. As part of the overall training project it was decided that a training manual on ACM was needed.

Arvinder Sambei was engaged to develop and write a manual on active case management in criminal cases which examined the international overview & best practice in active case management, international & regional human rights framework on the right to a fair trial and access to justice, and the link between case and court management. In addition, the manual includes a number of practical self-assessment questions and short scenarios in order to assist trainers in the design & delivery of the training workshops.
