Building capacity

Our approach to cooperating with our partners is absolutely unique in the region. No other NGO offers the combination of hands-on individual legal mentoring, where we use each case as a learning opportunity, complemented by practical and bespoke group training.

Strengthening our partners’ capacity is at the heart of what we do. We litigate almost all cases in partnership with lawyers or NGOs based in our target countries and mentor them on a case-by-case basis throughout the litigation process. This intensive and bespoke practice-based approach is complemented by training lawyers and human rights defenders through our annual Legal Skills Development Programme, online webinars, and workshops in the UK or abroad on specific aspects of the litigation and implementation process.
