At JSCA, we have worked steadily to position our institutional brand based on the systematic evolution of our efforts to achieve our mission.
Our Communications and Public Relations Area engaged in a strategic decision-making process that has strengthened our digital presence, SEO and SEM work, and efforts to boost our visibility on social media.
We began this process in 2014 when we updated our website and changed our hosting service. We also developed a presence on new social media, such as LinkedIn.
In 2015, we introduced a responsive website, which means that it can be adapted to various types of devices. We also updated our Virtual Library platform.
One year later, in 2016, we had a new website and moved the Virtual Library to a new platform. We then created the English version of the JSCA website, configured some of our social media platforms and joined Instagram. We also increased on presence in regional and global offline media.
In honor of the institution’s 20th anniversary, we updated our corporate image in 2019. This included our logo and website, which has a cleaner, more user-friendly design.
Despite the pandemic and global crisis, in 2020 we continued to increase our digital presence and strengthened ties with JSCA’s community on each of its social media platforms.
In 2021, we redesigned our communications strategy, establishing five key goals aligned with content areas (Research and Projects, Training and News), the editorial line and KPIs.
In that context, we designed a brand manual and brief verbal identity manual and strengthened our social media presence in terms of both graphics and content as well as our offline presence, especially in print and radio media.
We also bolstered our email campaigns. We have created an internal newsletter called JSCA Today and continue to position Judicial Systems Journal.
Nuestro director ejecutivo, Jaime Arellano, participa junto al abogado, Andrés Ojeda, en una entrevista especial conducida por los periodistas Gabriel Pereyra y Raúl Ponce de León de VTV Uruguay, sobre la creación de un Ministerio de Justicia en Uruguay.
Another aspect that has characterized our work over the past few years is the dissemination of our research, which has been focused on offering a unique view on the various processes linked to justice in the region.
Over the past eight years, JSCA has produced 75 publications.
The first issue of Judicial Systems Journal was published in 2001 in collaboration with INECIP. The publication’s main objective is to disseminate information on the state and operation of justice administration systems in the region from a comprehensive and systemic perspective.
Each issue focuses on a topic of interest for our field. JSCA has designed, developed and distributed the journal since 2014. We offer a brief review of some of our key publications below.
In this issue, we highlight the design of work processes for Hearing Management Offices and the planning of the implementation of the judicial office (Neuquén reform) and the context that is leading us towards a new perspective on the cultural change in the registration of judicial processes and the rules of the adversarial procedure system. We also focus on the situation of the family courts in Santiago de Chile. We also present the cases of Guatemala and La Pampa (Argentina) and highlight the importance of the case management system and its application in the Chilean context.
In this edition, we focus on the investigation of the case of José Efraín Ríos Montt, a Guatemalan dictator from the 20th century, and other international cases. We also present the trial of human rights violations cases in Chile. The issue also includes an analysis of the role of the prosecution service in response to serious cases that have transnational implications and a report from the Truth and Justice Program.
In this issue we highlight small claims proceedings and mediation in community justice in Santa Fe, Argentina. We also examine the use of restorative justice in Mexico’s national laws.
The main topics addressed in this issue are oral litigation with a gender perspective in Nicaragua’s civil proceedings, two empirical research projects in the region with different topics, and a case from Canada. We also consider the Mexican case from the perspective of criminal justice reform. The country moved from an inquisitorial system to an adversarial one with full implementation of the presumption of innocence and limitations on the use of pretrial detention.
The focus of this issue is protection of women’s rights. We offer a brief study on gender violence with a proposal for a management model and analyze various cases from Mexico, Brazil and Argentina. We also study gender identity laws in place in the region and highlight three models. The issue also includes an article on sexual diversity in the context of Mexico’s policy reform proposals in this area.
This issue offers analyses of criminal justice experiences from Guatemala, Costa Rica, Argentina, Brazil, Mexico, Honduras, Panama and Colombia. In Chile, we examine the criminal analysis system and investigative focus points. Finally, we consider the illegal vehicle market in Montevideo, Uruguay from 2013 to 2015.
