Heralding a new era for legal empowerment and human rights in South Asia
Dear readers, it is my pleasure to introduce to you the new quarterly newsletter from the South Asian Institute of Advanced Legal and Human Rights Studies (SAILS). We hope that this newsletter will help to keep you updated on how SAILS is tackling the issues of legal empowerment, access to justice and sustainable development from a uniquely South Asian perspective.
2016 has been an exciting year for SAILS – we have scaled up our regional trainings of trainers on paralegalism, we are working on improving curriculum development and pedagogy for paralegals in Bangladesh and our ambitious research agenda is investigating issues such as performance of courts, delivery of digital government services and implementation of SDG 16 in Bangladesh. We are also developing a new regional MA programme on Human Rights and Sustainable Development, to be launched in 2017.
We are thrilled to have you as a part of the our network. If you have any feedback or would like to get involved with SAILS then please do get in touch.
Manzoor Hasan, OBE
Executive Director, SAILS
