Here, watch videos related to IBJ's JusticeMakers project. JusticeMakers is an online community that shares intellectual capital and best practices in the field of criminal justice. The site connects passionate members of the criminal defense community, facilitates discussions, shares IBJs online defender eLearning training programs, and hosts competitions that seed the most innovative proposals that seek to curb torture and legal abuse. A project of International Bridges to Justice, JusticeMakers seeks to unleash the collective energies of criminal defenders from around the world and realize the vast potential of international human rights legislation.
Here, you can watch general videos about IBJ and its mission. International Bridges to Justice (IBJ) is a nonprofit, non-governmental organization that was founded in 2000 with a vision to end torture in the 21st Century and ensure the just implementation of criminal laws. IBJ's experience has shown that legal counsel at the earliest stages of defense can reduce instances of torture by as much as 80%. Thus, IBJ works with the public defender, or legal aid lawyer, to reinforce the protection for, and the individual dignity of, people facing unfair criminal prosecution in developing and transitional countries.
The eLearning online training curricula is a new initiative of International Bridges to Justice, and is hosted on the JusticeMakers platform (http://justicemakers.net). The eLearning program is a series of online training curricula for criminal defenders, based on domestic implementation of international human rights standards. The videos in this playlist are part of the training program. We have completed curricula for Rwanda and Burundi, and are in the process of creating programs for Cambodia, Pakistan, China, Brazil, India and Zimbabwe amongst others!
