Secondary Outcomes (explanation)
The main data source for this study will be administrative data from the CAM team in the Kenyan Judiciary. The datasets include mediator data and mediation case data (please see Annex I for a sample list of data fields). Such datasets are collected by the two committees of the Kenya Judiciary and will be entered into the Cadaster platform on an ongoing basis. We will use analytics tools to measure platform user engagement in order to understand usage patterns and improve the usability of the system. We will assess settlement rates, case duration, time spent on case, and whether cases re-open. We will also use the user engagement data to understand compliance and utilization of the platform.
We will also prototype new ways of measuring the well-being of individuals involved in cases using innovative survey methods (for instance, using oTree or DIME’s VirtualLab that integrates with Facebook Messenger) following the framework of the Kenya Continuous Household Survey (KCHSP) and Afrobarometer to ask about individual’s economic circumstances, justice needs, and trust in the law.
