This chapter addresses the measures taken to further access to justice. It mostly concentrates on the Indian subcontinent, with references to Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore, and the Philippines. Given the enormity and diversity of the region the paucity of information about some jurisdictions and the deficiency of familiarity with them, the chapter can only offer an outline of the issues involved. The discussion is by no means exhaustive of the measures which can address access to justice problems. Moreover, it explores two aspects of how states in the region have furthered economic access. The first is comparatively direct, the establishment of one type of special court. The second is in its infancy and involves state sanctioning of self-help by banks and other financial institutions to recover against the security (collateral) they have taken from borrowers for the credit advanced. It has also described an admittedly general distinction between social and economic access.

Keywords:   access to justice, Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore, Philippines, jurisdictions, social access, economic access
