Realizing Citizenship Rights: Paralegals in the Urdu-Speaking Community in Bangladesh

Council of Minorities and Namati are supporting the first group of community-based paralegals to work in Urdu-speaking camps across five cities in Bangladesh. The paralegals are empowering their fellow Urdu-speakers to understand their rights as citizens and to obtain and use legal identity documents. Paralegals also track each case to build an empirical understanding of how relevant laws are implemented.

This resource is a project overview of the work of these paralegals in Bangladesh.
