Review for International Bridges To Justice, Boston, MA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

International Bridges to Justice is a remarkable organisation,run by people with values and passion to ensure that the basic legal rights of all people are protected.

The strategy adopted by the organisation in order to achieve this aim is something that makes IBJ different to other non-profit organisations. The focus on training public defenders to enhance their skills and ability to defend detainees that are facing grave violations of their human rights, is what makes the work of IBJ shift from a bare ideology to sustainable change.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

personally witnessing the direct link between IBJ's work of training public defenders, and the latters' success in representing victims of human rights abuses.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

increase its global presence by expanding its funding and size.

Role:  Volunteer & I helped develop the Legal Training Resource Centre, an online community which provides public defenders with courses on the basic tenets of criminal law in order to futher develop their skills in representing people in need.
