Legal empowerment of the poor report

The Commission on Legal Empowerment of the Poor, an international program hosted by UN, has released two reports, Making the Law Work for Everyone Volume I and Making the Law Work for Everyone Volume II that call on governments to make legal empowerment a key pillar of the anti-poverty agenda. The reports found that the majority of the world's people are excluded from the rule of law because the majority of poor people live and work in the "informal sector" and are therefore locked out of recognized legal protections and economic benefits of the formal sector.
