Justice Base aims to promote the rule of law, human rights and justice sector reform in transitional and post-conflict societies by building the capacity of local lawyers and supporting nationally-owned rule of law initiatives.
Rule of law reform is a fundamental pre-requisite of development and peace building. It requires coordinated, multi-disciplinary, locally-led initiatives particular to the national context. Justice Base aims to strengthen the capacity of lawyers to engage in and guide the national discussion on rule of law needs and priorities, develop domestic rule of law initiatives, and lead legal and institutional reform efforts in emerging democracies.
Justice Base aims to support civil society and lawyers through a range of means:
Forming partnerships: Forming partnerships and otherwise supporting nationally-owned initiatives for promoting the rule of law.
Developing resources: Developing manuals, guides, and other resources with our national partners to support promotion of the rule of law and the protection of human rights.
Trainings and workshops: Organising, facilitating, conducting or supporting trainings and workshops aimed at raising awareness of the rule of law and the protection of human rights.
Who we are
Justice Base is a small organisation supported by the work of experienced human rights lawyers, researchers and experts working both as volunteers and consultants.
