  • How many problems are fairly resolved?
  • How many problems remain in need of fair resolution?
  • Where do people go to try to resolve their most serious legal problems?
  • How satisfied are they with the path to justice they embark themselves on?

The answers to these questions and the implications for further people-centred actions are laid out in the report (French only).
