Strengthen the capacity of CSOs in effectively participating in judicial reform efforts,and advocating for policy reforms in the justice sector
Hustisya Natin ultimately benefits the general public that warrants the improved integrity and performance of the justice system.
We engage various groups, including nongovernment and people’s organizations, especially regional or local nongovernment organizations (NGOs) that address issues of vulnerable sectors. We work with human rights defenders, the media and academe. The Project covers lawyers, lawyers’ groups, legal NGOs, and litigants, as well as justices, judges, quasi-judicial adjudicators, prosecutors, public attorneys, and their staff.
It benefits litigants in general, especially members of vulnerable groups, who demand the improved services of courts and quasi-judicial bodies to address their justice issues.
