A Workshop on Advancing Access to Justice and Legal Aid in Situations of Forced Displacement was convened by UNDP and UNHCR on 26-27 September 2022. UNDP and UNHCR colleagues at country, regional and global levels committed to the advancement of meaningful access to justice, took the time to reflect and develop a set of joint recommendations. This includes the development of a new Joint Roadmap on Access to Justice in Forced Displacement which will be rolled out in 2023 with a view to enhancing country focused action on access to justice for forcibly displaced people.
This work will continue within the newly adopted UNDP and UNHCR Joint Global Collaboration Framework for Inclusion and Solutions (2022-2025) including through joint advocacy, policy, technical guidance, capacity-building and programming.
