Mona Paré examines how access to justice affects children, exploring what makes them vulnerable in their encounters with the law and its procedures. Problems in this field require innovative solutions. To better understand how to improve the situation, Professor Paré looks for new voices and perspectives. She explains how the results of her research can help policymakers gain new perspectives on the challenges surrounding children’s access to justice, ultimately taking legal research in new directions.
The Viv(r)e la recherche en droit video series explores legal research as a gateway to justice. Through their unique experiences, legal scholars present aspects of legal research that many may have never considered before. They address topics such as access to justice for children, ethical issues surrounding life and death, the right to a healthy environment, understanding the law, and the unfair effects of the criminal justice system. The result is a series that illustrates how access to justice benefits from knowledge mobilization, and how access to knowledge drives justice mobilization. And that, ultimately, is why we are so committed to the world of research.
