THE DEVELOPMENT OF ACCESS TO JUSTICE IN CUSTOMARY LAW A. Introduction In international law, as in any domestic legal system, respect and protection of human rights can be guaranteed only by the availability of effective judicial remedies. When a right is violated, access to justice is of fundamental importance for the injured individual and it is an essential component of the system of protection and enforcement of human rights.
