    A. Feminist Law and Practice

    This longstanding APWLD programme provides training to women lawyers, policy makers and activists who want to advance equality for women. Participants analyse and critique discriminatory laws from feminist and rights based perspective and build campaigns to advance women’ rights.

    APWLD believes that while law can be used to oppress women, it can also be used as an instrument to realise justice, equality and human rights. While using law as a powerful tool, APWLD also recognizes that law is not neutral and often shaped to reinforce the status quo of power relations.

    APWLD works to build a community of legal activists, lawyers, policy makers and implementers who are committed to advancing women’s rights through law. We aim to equip them with the knowledge, skills and networks to analyse and challenge discriminatory laws and practices against women.

    This programme has two key strategies. The first is to provide Feminist Legal Training, the second is to instigate legal campaigns to advance women’s rights.

    B. Workshop and research on access to justice

    The main objective of the research is to examine and assess women’s access to justice in the plural legal systems of the seven countries of Southeast Asia through (1) a legal and policy research, and (2) case studies using primarily a participatory action research method. The research covers seven countries of Southeast Asia - Cambodia, Indonesia, Lao PDR, Philippines, Thailand, Timor Leste, and Viet Nam. It focuses on the state and non-state justice systems in those seven countries in relation to women’s access to justice and examine the of state and non-state justice systems.The research is part of a five-year implementation plan (2011-2016) of the UN Women Regional Programme on Improving Women’s Human Rights in Southeast Asia (CEDAW SEAP Phase II). The output ofthe research will be used to inform the development of strategic programsintended to enhance women’s access to justice.
