In this 2022 report, Fair Trials explores the growth of trial waiver systems internationally and proposes recommendations for policymakers when adopting such systems.

In 2022, Fair Trials, an international criminal justice watchdog group, produced a guide for policymakers related to plea bargaining practices. The report is based on research by Fair Trials focussed on the trial waiver system in Europe. The report seeks to identify risks associated with the adoption of plea bargaining as this form of adjudication grows internationally and provides recommendations for mechanisms to address those concerns.
