Supervisory board

José Jaime de Domingo has been engaged with MJ4ALL since 2006 when he was the International director of the Spanish NGO MPDL and the two organizations worked together on the legal rehabilitation of the refugees and IDPs in the former Yugoslav republics. He later helped to establish Microjustice country organisations in the Bolivia, Peru and Rwanda as well as the Microjustice International Platform. Mr de Domingo supports Microjustice4All because he is persuaded that legal services should be an integrated part of the cooperation tools. First, because it is necessary for improving social cohesion and social cohesion improves the welfare and help to diminish poverty. Second, because the cooperation support will never reach sustainability without the participation of a strong legal capacity affordable for everyone. Mr. de Domingo’s main professional experience has been in the area of Institutional Relations, at international and national levels. His knowledge and skills have developed as an International civil servant, an NGO executive and as a Director of private companies. He is currently Team Leader of the MediPIET Project.

Since 1991 he has also served as Team Leader of “EUROsociAL Health,” an EC-funded project which improved the social cohesion in the Latin-American countries, Director of International Action for the NGO Movement for Peace (MPDL) and Desk Officer of Direct Action Program, which provided aid to 1,200,000 Bosnian refugees across the Balkans. In the mid-1980s Mr. de Domingo started his career as an agriculture engineer, participating in development projects financed by the World Bank and Inter-American Development Bank, of which the most important was implemented in Brazil to provide farmland to the landless farmers.

Michiel Verweij has studied land and water management and has a master’s degree in business administration.
He has an international career as project manager and consultant in water management, sanitation and agriculture in Africa and Latin America. In his work he has seen that basic legal needs like property rights and being recognized as citizen are essential to any inclusive development endeavour. How can you invest in water and sanitation if large numbers of people have no property rights, how can people participate in catchment management if the rights to use water and natural resources are not clearly defined? By supporting men and women with Microjustice they come into a substantially better position to define their own development being it in economic, organizational, ecological, cultural and spiritual dimensions.
