Access to justice is a fundamental right guaranteed under a wide body of international, regional and domestic laws. In Africa, women make up much of Africa’s poorest and most marginalized population, and as such are often prevented from enforcing rights or seeking other recourse.

This book brings together contributors to explore and analyze the issue of gendered access to justice, poverty and disempowerment across Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA), and provides policy discussions on the integration of gender in justice programming. Through individual country case studies, the book focuses on the challenges, obstacles and successes of developing and implementing gender focused access to justice policies and programming in the region.

This multidisciplinary volume will be of interest to scholars and researchers across  law, economics and global development, with a focus on poverty and gendered focuses policies in Sub-Saharan Africa.
