The International Bar Association (IBA), in collaboration with the Bingham Centre for the Rule of Law, released a report titled International Access to Justice: Barriers and Solutions on October 21st, 2014 at the IBA’s conference in Tokyo.
This study, based on findings from 26 countries, identifies many different types of barriers, such as social and cultural barriers, institutional barriers, as well as ‘intersectional’ barriers. The report notes that although efforts to improve access to justice are significant there is still much work to be done and provides some recommendations.
