In many countries, the approach to informal justice mechanisms for the past several decades has been to outlaw certain mechanisms. All decisions to abolish informal justice mechanisms should be based upon whether the rights of women and girls are upheld by that mechanism. However, abolition without viable alternatives for women may be problematic and unrealistic.

For more on Abolition see that section in Programme Implementation.
