The judicial reforms in Singapore over the past 15 years have been successful on many counts, and its courts are now regarded as some of the most efficient and effective in the world. This publication examines the lessons that can be drawn from Singapore's experience to help inform similar initiatives in other countries. It highlights how extensive planning prior to initiating reforms and broad-based stakeholder participation through the process were critical to the success of the reforms, as well as benefiting from a unique political and economic context in Singapore.
