This publication is a result of a comprehensive study of over 23 access to justice assessments conducted between 2000 and 2010 in 14 countries in the Asian region. The study provides case studies and analyses of the approaches, strategies, methodologies and tools used in various assessments. Its ultimate purpose is to assist practitioners in conducting and improving their access to application of a human rights-based approach to access to justice assessments. It lays out why and how access to justice assessments can serve a means of understanding and identifying people’s justice needs, their barriers of accessing justice, as well as their capacity gaps and structural problems, encompassing legal, as well as social, economic, political and cultural challenges.
