Victims of humanitarian disasters often lose their basic legal and administrative documents which are necessary to prove their identity and ownership of property. This leads to difficulty for obtaining refugee/internally displaced person status, accessing aid programmes and rebuilding livelihoods. This is compunded by damaged infrastructures that cause slow bureaucratic processes. Microjustice4All aims to meet basic legal needs by providing accessible and affordable standardised legal services so that those affected by crises enjoy the same rights as the rest of the population.
This is an extract of the ‘Microjustice4All Methodology Handbook: How to Set Up a Microjustice4All Program’ which covers setting up and running micro-justice programmes. The full document and toolkit can be accessed for free by contacting Patricia van Nispen, founder and director of Microjustice4All.
