ANNUAL REPORT 2016

SHAPING A WORLD WHERE EVERY PERSON LIVES IN DIGNITY AND UNDER THE RULE OF LAW

Where we worked

Place holder - Justice is vital if we are to secure rights and dignity for all. Yet many around the world – the poor, women, children and youth, migrants, ethnic and sexual minorities – struggle to access it. IDLO works to build confidence in the justice sector by supporting legal and institutional reforms and promoting good governance.

We enhance access to justice by enabling governments to uphold human rights and empowering people to claim them. We facilitate innovative legal approaches to support sustainable development and economic opportunity.

In a major break-through from the past, the 2030 Agenda explicitly acknowledges access to justice and the rule of law as a goal and target of sustainable development. [ Read more ]
