About this grant
The project goal is to generate knowledge and evidence on the impact of community paralegals in addressing injustices in Africa. To this end, the University of the Western Cape has collaborated with the African Centre of Excellence on Access to Justice by providing research support to document the work of community paralegals. Continued support will allow the grantee to increase its reach on the work of community paralegals in three North African countries. The research continues to build an informed map of community paralegal activities and people-centered justice across Africa.
