    Throughout May and June, we are interviewing over 9,000 people in Mali about their encounters with legal problems in everyday life. This is part of HiiL’s collaboration with Mali’s Ministry of Justice as we work together on the second wave of the Justice Needs and Satisfaction Survey. The interview data will show the most serious and prevalent justice problems in Mali, what people do to resolve their problems and how they assess these paths to justice in terms of fairness, quality and costs.

    The war in Syria has forced millions of Syrians to flee their country. They are particularly vulnerable and live under difficult circumstances in their host countries. Access to justice, especially to formal institutions, is particularly challenging due to missing residence permits and critical documentation. Most refugees rely on themselves and their (often small) social network to seek information and resolve their problems. The biggest barrier which prevents many from engaging in dispute resolution is that the refugees do not believe that they will succeed or achieve a positive result.

Essentially, blockchain is a secure digital ledger which can record almost anything which has value – coins and financial transactions, ID documents and ownership titles, votes and shares, property and contractual rights, positive and negative reviews.
