Access to justice is frequently considered a development issue or a very sensitive type of programming. During crisis, particularly those characterized with rights violations, there are often perceptions by humanitarian actors that the existing systems may not be of interest or even harmful to victims of violence, and can reinforce discrimination, inequality and practices of violence. And yet still, even in these situations, women, girls, boys, men, person with disabilities and LGBTQIA+ continue to seek justice through these structures which in some instances can lead to more harm. Because humanitarian actors are either unwilling or lacking capacity and understanding on how to navigate the justice mechanisms, humanitarian action tends to exclude access to justice or include it in a very limited way at the onset of a crisis and in humanitarian response plans.
