Join Asia's Access to Justice Week!

Dec 6 - 10, 2018 | Chiang Mai, TH

 

The vibrant, timely and incredibly relevant Access to Justice Sessions provide a venue and platform for learning and sharing and act as an important mechanism in helping to break down various barriers and stigma. This is achieved in a number of ways including identifying many of the Access to Justice barrier commonalities faced by different marginalized and vulnerable groups and simultaneously demonstrating effective ways and means for these often divergent groups to unite and support each other in solidarity.
