  • Maurya Vijay Chandra
Measurement of access to justice has acquired increased significance in South Asia, especially as many national initiatives on access to justice are being funded by international agencies. However, the perspectives of the people at the grassroots nave not sufficiently been explored in either conceptualising access to justice or developing indicators for measuring it. It was with the hope that discussion of these issues mignt provide a fresh insight into measuring access to justice that I conducted 18 focus-group discussions in six towns and cities in India.
