AbstractIt has become increasingly clear that courts across the globe must do more to better organize and manage their caseload and that automation alone is not the answer. In response to this need, case flow management has emerged to become the central method of promoting greater court responsibility and accountability for efficient case processing. For over thirty years court case management concepts have evolved, starting in the United States (U.S.), spreading to other industrialized common law countries initially. Yet, for many judicial systems, the concept, techniques, and supporting systems of case flow management are still relatively new ideas that need to be more fully understood. This paper helps develop a basic understanding of case flow management by defining the concept, outlining the various techniques used, presenting in general the different case management information systems that support those techniques, and outlining the core steps a judicial system can take to plan for, select, and implement case management software. The aim is to provide an introduction for assisting judiciaries in developing a case flow management approach that works best in their own environment. This paper is organized as follows: chapter one gives introduction; chapter two answers the question to what is case flow management within a court environment?; chapter three answers what are case management information systems?; chapter four focuses on planning for, selecting, and implementing new case management software; and chapter five gives conclusions.

Thailand Financial Sector Assessment ProgramInternational Monetary Fund; World Bank (World Bank, Washington, DC, 2017-09-08)This assessment of the payment systems
in Thailand was undertaken in the context of the
International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the World Bank
Financial Sector Assessment Program (FSAP) exercise for
Thailand in January 2007. It covers the Bank of Thailand
Automated High-value Transfer Network (BAHTNET), which is a
real time gross settlement (RTGS) system. The Bank of
Thailand (BOT) conducted a comprehensive self-assessment of
BAHTNET observance of the Core Principles for Systemically
Important Payment Systems (CPSIPS). It was professionally
done and was made available to the mission in advance. The
Thai authorities were fully cooperative and all relevant
documentation to fulfill the assessment of BAHTNET was
provided on time and without difficulties. The logistical
support and warm hospitality of the officials of the BOT are
In Search of Success : Case Studies in Justice Sector Development in Sub-Saharan AfricaWalsh, Barry (World Bank, 2012-03-19)The World Bank, Department for International Development (DFID) and other donors have long been engaged in legal and judicial reform in sub-Saharan Africa in such areas as legal drafting, strengthening court administration, judicial training, and the empowerment of citizens through a better understanding of the legal system. This has often been done on an ad hoc basis with only limited review of other reform efforts in the region. In order to foster a more responsive approach to justice sector development programs, a collection of case studies was commissioned. One of the more daunting tasks was identifying notable justice sector developments or reforms, which offered specific impacts and which could be examined through both a desk review and field research. Independent of the funding source, the evidence base was not only limited but revealed a need for donors themselves to invest in better data collection, which could then be analyzed and measured against benchmarks or objectives such as improved access to justice. There is a significant need to review and learn from experiences, including controversial ones, in Africa's justice sectors. These case studies are not homogenous largely because their subjects vary and span a wide array of developments that reflect the realities of the region. Each story stands alone and is in no particular order. In the final chapter, the conclusions offered in each story are digested into ideas for future actions. The collection also represents a modest range of stories and it is to be hoped that other cases will be identified and shared. A comparison of experiences of sector-wide programs (SWAPs), for example, could help both donors and governments enhance socio-economic impact. It should be noted that the emphasis in this report is on providing information about positive directions in justice sector development and the ways in which lessons learned might be applied to achieve greater impact in the future. The anticipated value of this collection is that some of the conclusions or actions may be taken up and used to contribute to improvements by those committed to improving the rule of law in sub-Saharan Africa and is in search of 'success'.
