Justice

Access to justice is fundamental to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals, which commit UN Member States to “promote the rule of law at the national and international levels, and ensure equal access to justice for all”. Gaps in access to justice reinforce poverty and undermine inclusive economic growth.

UNU research recognizes that justice is fundamental to the realization and assertion of an individual’s human rights. By focusing on vulnerable groups most acutely affected by justice gaps, such as migrants, UNU experts are illuminating the importance of approaching access to justice as part of a broader agenda for social justice in areas including health, gender and environment.
