Journey to Justice
The video shows how UNDP’s partnership with the Department of Justice, Ministry of Law and Justice, Government of India is helping poor and marginalized communities across India access justice and secure their entitlements. Since 2009, the partnership has reached out to two million people including women, dalits, scheduled castes, and scheduled tribes and people with disabilities in seven states of India. As a result of the partnership, legal information centres and mobile Right to Information clinics have been established to help communities learn about and demand their rights. In addition, radio and training programmes enable widespread dissemination of information on a range of legal rights.
Projects and Initiatives
In partnership with the Department of Justice, Ministry of Law and Justice, Government of India, the project focuses on strengthening access to justice for the poor by developing strategies that address barriers to accessing justice in legal, social, economic and political domains.
