Justice

EUROsociAL has resumed the work begun in the first phase by supporting the effective application of the 100 Brasilia rules on access to justice by persons in situations of vulnerability. The Justice thematic area is at the centre of its action aimed at vulnerable persons: women victims of gender violence, people belonging to indigenous or native peoples, young Afro-Americans, the elderly, people with psychosocial or auditive disabilities, incarcerated people, etc. And always with the same goal: helping people in these groups overcome the barriers they face in access to justice and resolving their disputes—interpersonal or with the government—in a more expeditious, effective and comprehensible way, sometimes directly. In most cases this is being done by strengthening the resources, mechanisms and capacities of government agencies in the Justice sector for providing their services.

To do this, operative action protocols are being designed to enable institutions in the Justice sector (Judiciary, Ministries of Justice, Legal Aid Corporations, Houses of Justice, etc.) to improve their mechanisms for attention and assistance to these persons in the following ways: improving and strengthening the resources and capacities of institutions for providing assistance, or those of prosecutor's offices for assisting victims of gender-based violence; improving investigation of these types of crimes; strengthening institutional capacities for resolving certain types of disputes through other more suitable means; providing information and advising on means of access to law; and lastly, working so that incarcerated individuals have better opportunities for finding employment and/or social reintegration after their release from prison.
