Empirical Methods in Legal Research - Assessing women’s access to justice

Thursday 25 February 2021

Teresa Marchiori (American University / WIEGO) will talk about measuring women’s access to justice in the next session Empirical Methods in Legal Research.

Marchiori will focus on how to create meaningful measurements of women’s access to justice. She says ‘After looking at the definition of access to justice, we will be analysing the different steps of the justice chain and the barriers women encounter when trying to access justice. Building on this, and using a right-based approach to access to justice, we will discuss how to design and implement measurements tools able to provide a clear picture of women’s access to justice in a given context, and to inform policies and enabling legal framework fostering women’s access to justice.’

Teresa Marchiori is a Professor at American University who has worked on women’s access to justice and women’s empowerment with the World Bank and UN Women. Marchiori has previously shared her expertise on indicators and measurements of access to justice with the Council of Europe’s Gender Equality Commission and the Swiss Centre of Expertise in Human Rights. She has also participated in the OECD Policy Roundtable on Equal Access to Justice. Since 2018, Marchiori has been working with Women in the Informal Economy: Globalizing and Organizing (WIEGO) to strengthen access to justice for workers in the informal economy.
