    Access to Justice: Court Efficiency in Zambia
    Banda, Tinenenji (The Cornell Institute for African Development, 2019)
    While access to justice has many components, the speed with which litigants can have their case disposed of is an important justice indicator. While there is widespread belief that the courts are inefficient, the evidence of this inefficiency is largely anecdotal and impressionistic. There is very little, if any, empirical data on the perfor-mance of Zambian courts. This project seeks to address this gap and examine how efficiently the courts dispense justice and how ordinary citizens seeking legal remedies interface with the judicial system. It is hoped that re-search findings can inform the development of norms and standards that can facilitate sound case management models and accountability.

    The Developmental State in Zambia: Plausibility, Challenges, and Lessons from South Korea
    Cheelo, Caesar; Hinfelaar, Marja; Ndulo, Manenga (The Cornell Institute for African Development, 2020)
    The major focus of this occasional paper publication is on lessons drawn from a comparative analysis between Zambian and South Korean experiences as developmental states since the 1960s. This publication offers important insights to policy making in addressing issues of development and structural transformation in attempting to determine how a successful developmental state uses capable institutions to steer and govern transformation and sustainable, inclusive development.
