The COVID-19 pandemic and states' responses to it are having an unprecedented effect on the functioning of justice systems globally. This publication highlights some considerations and strategic entry points for practitioners in ensuring access to justice for all in the context of COVID-19.

It emphasizes the importance of upholding the rule of law, protecting and respecting international human rights standards and basic principles of legality, including the rights to equality before the courts and to a fair trial, as part of preparation (p. 12), response (p. 22), and recovery efforts on COVID-19 (p. 34).
