Universal Access to Justice

Three meetings to discuss

The UN Sustainable Development Goals Fund, the University of Navarra School of Law, and the General Council of Spanish Lawyers has organized a series of three meetings to discuss the Universal Access to Justice.

The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, in Goal 16: “Promote just, peaceful and inclusive societies” and in its target 3 “promote the rule of law at the national and international levels and ensure equal access to justice for all”, indicates the importance of providing access to justice for all and building effective, accountable and inclusive institutions at all levels.

The main objective of these meetings were to create a space for an in-depth debate concerning the current challenges facing the full enforcement of the right to access to justice, assuming that this is one of the basic tenets of the rule of law. The debates aim to generate an intense exchange of ideas between key players and stakeholders in order to contribute to the recognition, protection and promotion of the right of access to justice at the national and international levels.
