The need to secure the individuals' access to justice in circumstances of adversity has further been asserted to the benefit of abandoned or ‘street’ children, members of peace communities and other civilians in situations of armed conflict, internally displaced persons, and individuals under infra-human conditions of detention.It is reassuring to find nowadays a developing case-law asserting and sustaining the prevalence of human rights of persons in situations of great vulnerability, if not defencelessness.

Keywords: access to justice in adverse circumstances; abandoned children; civilians in armed conflicts; internally displaced persons; individuals under detention in harsh conditions
