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.
