Initiatives for Legal Empowerment

The Gender and Justice Unit hones in on legal empowerment as one of the most powerful catalysts of gender equality and social justice, both of which are crosscutting and critical to meaningful citizen participation in public life.

Programmes

Legal Empowerment

Through legal empowerment, people can become more engaged with the laws and processes they are affected by, for example, promoting gender equality and protecting social justice resulting in improved accountability, transparency, and responsiveness in the legal framework.

Strategic Partnerships

Collaborating with other organisations and individuals to advocate for systematic change in public law matters, including issues that affect the disadvantaged and the environment.

Research, Writing & Advocacy

Legal research, writing and advocacy from a south global perspective, critically exploring the tensions between the law and the lived realities of marginalised and vulnerable populations, particularly women and those marginalised due to their gender and or sexual orientation.

Technical Assistance

We are dedicated to working alongside partners and communities to bring about positive change through expert guidance and support. Our focus on collaborative efforts drives us to create effective and sustainable solutions.
