Legal competitions as a tool for awareness raising
Location: Provinces of Bujumbura Rural, Burundi
Principal organisations: IFAD
The Transitional Programme of Post-Conflict Reconstruction (PTRPC), implemented by the Government of Burundi and financed by IFAD, has provided legal support to poor rural communities. Working towards the goals of peace, economic empowerment and access to rights for women, PTRPC implemented a series of tools, such as mobile legal clinics, legal trainings (for both paralegals and communities), workshops and legal competitions. The use of legal competitions was one of the most innovative practices introduced by this programme and significantly contributed to raising awareness on women’s land rights.
