In March 2018, MJ4All has started mapping legal inclusion in Bolivia, and is now launching its operations in Kenya.
Applying 20 years of experience in the field, MJ4ALL is developing an innovative, low-cost social research methodology with local teams in both countries. Aimed at eradicating legal exclusion of vulnerable people, mapping works like a surgeon, precisely identifying where action is needed to legally include these excluded groups.
This mapping provides an implementation plan for three inextricably linked sub-objectives of Global Goal 16 of the Sustainable Development Goals: to promote peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, to provide access to justice for all and to build effective, accountable and inclusive institutions at all levels.
The results of the Mapping Legal Inclusion in Bolivia and Kenya will shortly be presented.
The goal of the symposium that was held in The Hague on November 7, 2017, was to develop a common plan to implement the Legal Inclusion aspect of SDG 16, based on the experience of 20 years of legal empowerment work undertaken by MJ4All.
As a result of 20 years of field work, MJ4All has developed an innovating methodology for the legal empowerment of the excluded.
To mark this occasion, MJ4All publishes its new Handbook, providing a practical guide to implement the methodology anywhere.
We also will launch our new strategy, the "Global Legal Inclusion Program" to promote this fundamental work.
