Procedural Protections, Gaps and Proposals for Reform
Chapter 3: The Formal Internal Justice System of the UN
The UN’s Formal Internal Justice System is its primary forum for dispute resolution relating to employment. The model of global administrative justice is applied to the justice system, with a focus on the UN Dispute and Appeals Tribunals, because it produces administrative decisions that are made pursuant to formal power, which affect the rights, interests or obligations of UN staff members.Whilst the justice system ensures that the UN Tribunals are governed by appropriate procedural rules and regulations, such regulations can be complex which, along with issues of location and inclusivity, can diminish accessibility. Analysis of the procedures and decision-making that occur within the internal justice system through the lens of the global administrative justice model reveal a highly complex, often over-burdened system that does its best to articulate and implement good procedural practice, but that can be stultified by under-resourcing, structural complexities and a lack of reach.
