Abstract

The Environmental Scans are the first component of the 'Free Access to Law – Is it Here to Stay' global study on the sustainability of FAL initiatives. The overall goal of this research is to respond to a need to study what free access to law initiatives do and how they do it. This will lead to an understanding of the effects FAL initiatives have on society and to an exploration of the factors determining their sustainability. The general hypothesis is that success leads to sustainability. That is, if the free access to law initiative is successful, it will have greater chances of securing funds and ensuring sustainability. The project covers the following regions: Southern and Eastern Africa, Western Africa, Asia and the Pacific and Canada. In order to complete a cross-case comparative analysis, countries have been selected to represent multiple legal traditions with FAL initiatives at various stages of development.
