Fast Facts: Justice and Security30 Aug 2011
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.
