The NHRF prioritises work aimed at ensuring full and equal access to justice, recognizing justice as the key component to combat impunity.
Ensuring access to justice involves facing intricate challenges arising regardless of national and international laws formally guaranteeing the protection of human rights. Some of these obstacles are based on the discrimination of certain groups on grounds of gender, religion, or ethnic background. Other obstacles are rooted in the absence of normative frameworks, administrative weaknesses, or the lack of political will.
Many of the diverse organisations supported by the NHRF have contributed remarkable efforts to reclaim their right to full and equal access to justice. Some of these efforts include documenting human rights violations, promoting the visibility and empowerment of discriminated groups, preserving memories so future generations will not forget and repeat the violations, and providing free legal assistance to ensure equal access to justice.
