Access to Justice

Justice is vital if we are to secure rights and dignity for all. Yet whether as individuals, groups or communities, many around the world – women, children and youths, migrants, ethnic and sexual minorities – often struggle to access it. Accessing justice is a matter of supply and demand: it involves empowering people to seek it, and securing the mechanisms to deliver it. Rights, in other words, are granted to those in a position to claim them.  For this reason, alongside building capacity in the judicial sector, grassroots legal empowerment forms the core of our engagement.
Our vision is of a culture of justice that secures fair outcomes. Working with a broad network of partners and alumni, we offer both conceptual frameworks and empowerment solutions in some the world’s toughest environments.
