UN Report on Legal Empowerment of the Poor launched

The UN Commission on Legal Empowerment of the Poor has released its report called Making the Law Work for Everybody- you can view and download a copy by clicking that link. The video of the official launch of this report on June 3rd can be viewed here

I was a part of the consultative process, which was typically fraught with disagreements and debates, often over the smallest details. So I am also aware that, like all UN events, resulting publications are necessarily broad and high level to achieve some level of consensus. In a few weeks I hope to provide a brief summary and critique of the report. Safe to say now that, no matter what the substance, I am happy that this has been propelled onto the international agenda. 

(update 7/9/09: My summary and initial response to the report is posted here
