Access to justice (2012)

In the present report, the Special Rapporteur on extreme poverty and human rights analyses the obstacles to access to justice for persons living in poverty. Access to justice is a fundamental right in itself and essential for the protection and promotion of all other civil, cultural, economic, political and social rights. Without effective and affordable access to justice, persons living in poverty are denied the opportunity to claim their rights or challenge crimes, abuses or human rights violations committed against them.
