Member Spotlight: Inter-American Program of Judicial Facilitators

The Inter-American Program of Judicial Facilitators (also known by its Spanish acronym IJFP) works to build access to justice for vulnerable women and indigenous communities who live in rural areas by establishing a program of judicial facilitators or paralegals, with national coverage, administered by the Justice Department and recognized by the judiciary.

Network Spotlights are short profile articles focusing on members of the Global Legal Empowerment Network. Spotlight articles use case studies and ‘key lessons’ to provide insights into the work of network members. Whether you are working in the same country, with similar issues or want to understand new legal empowerment approaches, the Network Spotlight is a useful learning resource.
