The ability to enforce a right is central to transforming fundamental rights from theory into concrete reality. Access to justice is not only a right in itself but also an enabling and empowering right since it allows individuals to enforce their rights and obtain redress.

The summaries are compiled from the national thematic studies that were obtained through the FRA network of legal experts, FRALEX. The national thematic studies constituted the background information drawn on by the FRA in order to compile its comparative report on ‘Access to justice in Europe: an overview of challenges and opportunities'. The summaries provide further details on the national situation in the selected areas covered by the comparative report.  

Disclaimer: The national thematic studies were commissioned as background material for the comparative report on ‘Access to justice in Europe: an overview of challenges and opportunities' by the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA). The views expressed in the summaries compiled from the national thematic studies do not necessarily reflect the views or the official position of the FRA. These summaries are made publicly available for information purposes only and do not constitute legal advice or legal opinion. They have not been edited.
