Building Foundations of Justice
Building Foundations of Justice is a two-year, EU-funded projected implemented in partnership by International Bridges to Justice (IBJ), Samreth Law Group (SLG), and the East West Management Institute (EWMI). The project aims to enhance delivery of justice and rule of law in Cambodia, particularly at the local level, by building and strengthening three of the key foundations of an effective justice sector: trained and accountable justice officials, effective legal aid providers, and citizens who are knowledgeable of their rights and responsibilities. EWMI’s focus through this project is on increasing the level of awareness and understanding of legal rights and obligations, and increasing cooperation and trust among citizens, police, and local officials.
