We support the rule of law through three separate programmes.
Supporting negotiated settlements; underpinning litigation and providing funding and training for strategically chosen cases that set legal precedents, which impact human development beneficially, far beyond the specific case concerned.
Building a voluntary peer-led network of senior leading African judges, who meet, share and work together to address their judicial challenges. In the future a secure Virtual Private Network will provide the Judicial Action Group with the space in which members can share best practice, resources and plans for addressing issues of concern.
Creating sui generis contractual structures, and negotiating the working relationship between company and community, and culminating in documentation, for example, recording from the outset the terms on which a community is willing to give its free, prior and informed consent to major resource or infrastructure projects. Such agreements ensure improved long-term outcomes, with provision for ongoing monitoring and certifying the company/community relationship.
