"Justice for All" - The Report of the Task Force on Justice

23 May 2019 13:0

The Task Force on Justice is an initiative of the Pathfinders for Peaceful, Just and Inclusive Societies, co-chaired by Argentina, the Netherlands, Sierra Leone, and The Elders.

In its "Justice for All" report, the Task Force has explored the delivery of Sustainable Development Goals’ targets covering justice. At the heart of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development lies a vision of a “just, equitable, tolerant, open and socially inclusive world in which the needs of the most vulnerable are met.” Yet, billions of people are not able to obtain justice.

Drawing on research by the world’s leading justice organizations and experts, this report provides a first estimate of the global justice gap. It makes the case for shifting from a model that provides justice only for the few, to one that delivers measurable improvements in justice for all.

Chapter 4 is addressing the issue of injustice with a prevention lens. It also brings out how lessons learned from transitional justice could serve justice sector reform.
