New report: How can governments guarantee women’s access to justice?

A new report of the online Roundtable on “Framework to measure access to justice including specific challenges facing women” is now available.


The report discusses the concept of access to justice in accordance with international and Council of Europe’s human rights standards; it analyses the specificity of women’s access to justice and describes the role of governments in ensuring access to justice for all. It also lays out specific guidelines that can most contribute to inclusive access to justice in Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, the Republic of Moldova, and Ukraine, and discusses relevant indicators.


The report provides national authorities with recommendations towards a research plan aiming at collecting key data useful to inform policies and interventions by governments to ensure inclusive access to justice to all citizens, including women.


The report was produced in the framework of the project “Women’s access to justice : delivering on the Istanbul Convention and other European gender equality standards”, funded by the European Union and the Council of Europe and implemented by the Council of Europe in their Partnership for Good Governance II.
