The Scales of Justice in Peru: Judicial Reform and Fundamental Rights

Citation: Landa, César (2001) The Scales of Justice in Peru: Judicial Reform and Fundamental Rights. ISA Occasional Papers (24). ISSN 0953-6825

In this paper César Landa explores the long-standing and continued difficulties surrounding judicial reform in Peru. He explains that to secure an authentic reform of the administration of justice the judicial function must be at the service of the people’s rights. This means that the judges must vary their position with regard to the law because, although fundamental rights were once only valid within the limits of the law, now the law is only valid within the limits of the fundamental rights. Judicial reform remains a central question to be addressed by government in Peru.
