What if you called the police and no one came to help you? What if there was no way to get justice if someone harmed you or your children? What if violent criminals in your neighbourhood had no fear at all of being stopped or caught?
According to the United Nations, justice systems in the developing world are so broken that the majority of poor people – an estimated four billion – live life “far from the law’s protection.”
The poor are so vulnerable because their justice systems
– police, courts and laws – don’t protect them from violent people.
