Research on Women's Access to Justice in the Maldives

June 23, 2021

A 2014 Legal and Justice Sector Baseline Study (LJSBS 2014) undertaken by Attorney General’s Office (AGO) and the UNDP Maldives found that special measures need to be put in place in the Maldives to achieve adequate level of access to justice for women. Following the LJSBS 2014, UNDP Maldives initiated a research in 2016 to explore and understand the extent to which, and how, women experience access to justice. This report provides the findings from the research and covers a broad range of issues relevant to gain insights about the extent and nature of issues relevant to understanding access to justice for women in the context of Maldives.
