Maja Yhde

Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt


The study examines the access to the system of justice in two municipalities in Bolivia; Riberalta and Tupiza, both recipients of new, Danida-funded legal centres. The particular focus is on the barriers in the access to the system of justice for the most vulnerable and marginalized segments of the population. The study is designed as a comparative analysis, with the qualitative interview as the main methodical approach. The investigation shows that poverty, understaffing, lack of infrastructure, corruption, heavy bureaucracy in the administration and a generally low awareness of the public legal services in the population are the main barriers to a fully functioning legal system. Additionally, the legal system in Riberalta is shown to require significantly more personnel than that of Tupiza.
