The absence of an accessible and credible justice and governance system not only adversely impinges on citizens fundamental rights but also regards growth and development. Accordingly, issues of rule of law, judicial independence, equality, accountability and non-discrimination have in the past few years transcended the boundaries of legal arena and have become the focus of development discourse. This book examines some of the principal factors that deny the poor and disadvantaged people access to justice and administrative processes in Bangladesh and explores the approaches used by relevant actors for empowering them in meaningful ways. In so doing, the book broadly looks at legal literacy, public interest litigation, alternative dispute resolution and legal aid as tools of legal empowerment and critically evaluates their role in tangibly changing the lives of the poor and the disadvantaged. It also underscores the achievements and drawbacks inherent in these various initiatives and poses vital questions regarding the sustainability of their impact in the long run
