Access to justice

The United Nations has identified Access to Justice as a priority sustainable development goal as discrimination, inequality, marginalisation and exclusion are obstacles to social justice. Justice should be available and meaningful to all people, regardless of who they are, their legal, political, economic or other circumstances, and where they are situated, in Australia or elsewhere in the world. Research in this program improves access to, and the experience of, justice, particularly in relation to vulnerable groups including:

  • First Nations People and other Indigenous Peoples
  • Women who experience gender violence
  • LGBTQI+;
  • Young people and children
  • Those needing care and support to access everyday life
