Advancing the accountability of the judiciary and justice for women in Indonesia
What role for the EU?
Access to effective and fair justice systems is essential for addressing the root causes of inequality and for contributing to shared prosperity. Democracy, sustainable development, peace and stability are all dependent on the accountability, transparency and credibility of justice systems and the access to justice for all citizens. Yet, women often face various difficulties and barriers in accessing justice. It is therefore crucial to make justice systems more gender-responsive by enhancing women’s admittance to justice and improving the quality of legal representation provided to women.
Parliaments during the Covid-19 Pandemic: Involved adequately or by passed by the executive?
Case Studies from India and the Philippines
For more than 2 years, the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic has affected lives in almost every country on earth. Governments around the world have taken measures to prevent the spread of infection. Some of these measures, such as (in)travel restrictions, bans on public gatherings or curfews, triggered intense controversy because they amounted to restrictions on basic civil and political liberties as laid down in numerous constitutions. With regard to parliaments as the most important institution of representative democracy, the first question asked was whether parliamentary functions and parliamentary procedures were affected by the pandemic. Fears were also expressed that at least some governments might use the corona pandemic as an opportunity to restrict fundamental rights or to change the system of separation of powers in their favor. It is true that crises are generally regarded as "moments for the executive" because it has the necessary resources to deal with crises and the public rightly expects governments to solve problems. Nevertheless, since the beginning of the pandemic, there has been global concern that the executive branch of some countries might abuse the pandemic to expand its own powers at the expense of parliament and other constitutional bodies.
