IJM Findings and Studies

Proving Justice for the Poor is Possible

We believe the children, families and communities we serve deserve the very best. We owe it to them – and to those who make our work possible – to ensure that our work is effective. That’s why we base the design and management of our programs on evidence we collect through rigorous documentation, monitoring and evaluation.

Here’s how it works:

1) Start with Measurement

When we begin a new program to combat a specific form of violence in a community, we measure the prevalence of the crime we are targeting, and we assess how the justice system responds to it.

2) Track Changes

Throughout our work in a community, we measure and analyze changes in how police, judges and other actors and institutions in the public justice system respond to the crime we are targeting. We also continue to assess how prevalent the crime is, watching for changes.

3) Ensure People are Safer

We use this critical information to ensure that the justice system’s response to the crime is truly improving, and that these improvements are actually making vulnerable people safer from the targeted form of violence – our ultimate goal.

4) Share What We've Learned

We grow the impact by sharing what we’ve learned with key stakeholders in the communities where we work, and with audiences around the world.
