Tackling gender based violence in Myanmar: a pro bono lawyer’s perspective

Gender based violence is a social and economic problem in Myanmar, for which the national criminal justice system requires new measures to respond effectively.  In collaboration with ActionAid International, ASF provides technical expertise and guidance to improve access to justice for persons who are at risk and/or have suffered GBV. Lionel Blackman, member of ASF’s International Legal Network, volunteered his pro bono services to the project. He shared his experience with us.
