In the absence of access to justice, people are unable to have their voice heard, exercise their rights, challenge discrimination or hold decision-makers accountable. UNDP promotes effective, responsive, accessible and fair justice systems as a pillar of democratic governance. Our focus is on:

1.    Access to Justice: Assisting poor and marginalized people to use formal and/or informal institutions in order to seek justice;

2.    Rule of Law: Supporting the transformation of  institutions to establish and uphold rules and laws; and

3.    Security: Ensuring that individuals, communities and developing states benefit from efficient, legitimate and accountable security institutions.
