Critical Issues: Access to Justice & Human Rights
Weak legal institutions and poorly functioning systems of justice pose challenges to citizens throughout Asia in resolving disputes, enforcing their rights, and accessing benefits to which they are legally entitled. This slideshow examines issues of access to justice and human rights through the lens of three countries: Cambodia, where economic land concessions are increasingly leading to instability and displacement of indigenous communities; Timor-Leste, where a nascent community policing initiative is increasing police accountability and providing higher levels of security to communities; and Thailand, where the Malay-Muslim majority population of the conflict-affected South call for improved access to justice security and human rights protection.
