The Coalition secretariat will work together with CPJ to manage the project’s domestic implementation. Together, AJC and CPJ will hold consultative meetings with women-led civil society groups and conduct a systems-mapping exercise to identify the key legal needs related to international justice and accountability. Following this, AJC and CPJ will design 1-2 interventions in Bangladesh.

System Mapping Exercise

On 17 and 18 November 2023, AJC and CPJ conducted our first systems mapping exercise in Dhaka, Bangladesh. Together with women-led civil society groups from each jurisdiction, we engaged in a series of exercises identifying dynamics preventing access to justice and accountability.

Exploring Project Ideas Meeting

On 24 April, the Asia Justice Coalition secretariat and the Centre for Peace and Justice co-hosted a day-long discussion on the Women Leaders in International Justice and Accountability (WIJA) Project in Dhaka.

 

Building on the November 2023 Systems Mapping workshop, the meeting explored the avenues and gaps for int’l justice and accountability in Bangladesh on three thematic areas - refugee/ethnic minorities, post-conflict justice, and international criminal mechanisms.
