The second element is a scoping study which explored, in interviews, the parameters, operational issues, possibilities and difficulties of tribunal reform, as well as the current gap in the arrangements for the oversight and accountability of tribunals. The Report's recommendations are presented around the themes of users, processes, judicial leadership, structures, system review and a roadmap indicating tasks and a schedule for their implementation.
