Gustavo Jalkh, the ..., 18 Nov 2013 [cached]
Gustavo Jalkh, the newly-appointed head of the Council who previously served as Minister of Government and Minister of Justice in the Correa administration, joined the Dialogue to shed light on the reforms and recent implementations.
Jalkh recognized the troubled past of Ecuador's courts, noting that the country's historic challenges provided the impetus for Correa's recent reforms. He acknowledged the 2004 Inter-American Commission on Human Rights case against Ecuador over the arbitrary removal of judges from the nation's Constitutional Court and explained that this, among other similar incidents, prompted the administration to institute major changes to the system. Unfortunately, said Jalkh, the government only recently obtained the means and resources to carry out the reforms, which is why the process is still ongoing.
Jalkh went on to outline the key objectives of the strategic judicial reform plan. He noted that the new reforms promote respect for the autonomy of the judicial branch, and the addition of hundreds of new judges is essential for the representation of Ecuadorian citizens before the law. Jalkh added that the overarching reason the court reforms were implemented in 2011 was to restore citizen security and confidence in the system. The plan focuses on modernization of the judicial body at all levels of the courts, in order to promote effectiveness and efficiency. Jalkh says that the plan has been largely successful this far, pointing to the efficiency of the new system thus far and the elimination of Ecuador's long-standing backlog of cases.
Panelists concluded by highlighting remaining challenges for the administration's reform plans. Jalkh considers the national perception of corruption and Ecuador's history of judicial impunity to be major hurdles moving forward.
Posadas proposed placing less value on the recent numerical results enumerated by Jalkh, and instead suggested that the administration should wait to measure the success of the policies until more long-lasting determinants are available.

During the UN conference, Dr Gustavo Jalkh, President of the Judicial Council of Ecuador, pointed to the role of machismo in Latin America's patriarchal societies.
"Machismo creates the unacceptable abuse in the domination of women," he said. "Men's fear is the root of violence against women," yet, "men no longer need to be afraid".
He noted that Ecuador was the second most equal country in the region. In 2013, the country created a social unit to take care of victims of gender-based violence.
"As long as violence against women exists, these judicial units will be essential," explained Dr Jalkh. "Without dignity there is no justice," he said.
In addition, he warned against the many voices against gender equality in the region and highlighted the need to further raise awareness of this crucial issue.
