Many would say that the law can be complex and challenging and is best left alone. Our experience during this Commission has shown us a very diff erent perspective.

Even in environments where formal legal change is a slow and arduous process, we have witnessed countries taking action to strengthen access to justice and challenge stigma and discrimination.
