Making the Law Work for Everyone: Working group reports
Commission on Legal Empowerment of the Poor, 2008 - Law
The vast majority of the word's people lives outside the law and thus does not have a chance to better their lives and climb out of poverty. This causes national and global stagnation. The remedy for the exclusion is inclusion through Legal Empowerment of the Poor which is important economically, politically, socially, and morally. The Commission on Legal Empowerment of the Poor (2005) was the first global initiative to focus on the link between exclusion, poverty, and the law, and was hosted by the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) in New York. This first report of the Commission covers the following topics: making the law work for everyone; the four pillars of legal empowerment; legal empowerment is smart politics and good economics; agenda for change; and implementation strategies. The report is based on research, analysis and consultations in more than 20 developing countries, and encourages debates and discussions towards realization of Millennium Development Goals.--Publisher's description.
