It is significant that the need to secure the individuals' access to justice in the most adverse circumstances has been acknowledged in international case-law in recent years. Such has been the case, for example, of undocumented migrants. Special attention has been devoted to them in the recent case-law of both the European and the Inter-American Courts of Human Rights.This latter has issued two Advisory Opinions of historical importance, namely, Advisory Opinion n. 16 on the Right to Information on Consular Assistance in the Framework of the Due Process of Law (1999), and Advisory Opinion n. 18 on the Juridical Condition and Rights of Undocumented Migrants.

Keywords:   access to justice in adverse circumstances, undocumented migrants, consular assistance, right to information, guarantees of due process of law, Advisory Opinions
