Survey Report on Legal Aid

In January 2022, the GPC TTLP launched a project focused on legal aid in humanitarian settings aimed at:

  • Improving the capacities of the Protection clusters and participating agencies, including development, human rights, humanitarian and peace international and national organizations, to understand and assess the legal aid needs in their countries of operation, address existing gaps and promote legal aid interventions so people affected by internal displacement and humanitarian crises have access to justice and can enjoy their rights;
  • Enhancing the GPC TTLP’s ability to demonstrate the need to integrate legal aid in humanitarian response from the outset and
  • Developing knowledge products and tools for the protection clusters at field level to address legal aid needs collectively.

In this framework, a survey was developed to explore the following aspects of legal aid programming in crisis settings.
