#JusticeForAll campaign launched in Georgia to promote access to justice free of visible and invisible barriers

Access to justice is a fundamental prerequisite for the protection of basic human rights by citizens. To improve access to justice means to tackle existing inequalities and provide quality services to all, notwithstanding their gender, ethnicity, race, identity, age, social condition or physical abilities.

In Georgia, different groups continue reporting challenges they face when accessing justice - from non-accessible buildings to insensitive environment.

To highlight and help counter the existing problems, the European Union and the Council of Europe have launched today the online campaign #JusticeForAll with one key message:

Accessible justice must be free of visible and invisible barriers: sensitive and disability-friendly environment, accessible buildings, interpretation and convenient location always and for all.

The campaign aims at raising awareness of the existing issues faced by different groups in accessing justice in the country and it will present real stories of people with disabilities, representatives of minority groups, women and children overcoming barriers to access to justice. It will offer a platform to those whose voices are rarely considered and often forgotten. This campaign wishes to put these issues on the radar of decision makers and to encourage taking necessary steps for a more accessible justice system.

The stories will be published periodically in English and Georgian through the online presence of the Partnership for Good Governance II (website, Facebook and Twitter) and of the Council of Europe Office in Georgia (website, Facebook and Twitter).

We encourage you to share and promote these stories further. Together, let's make the vision #JusticeForAll a reality!

This campaign is organised in the framework of the project "Enhancing the Accountability and the Efficiency of the Judicial System and the Professionalism of Lawyers in Georgia", funded by the European Union and the Council of Europe and implemented by the Council of Europe in their Partnership for Good Governance II.
