A former public defender and ordained minister, Karen Tse moved to Cambodia in 1994 to train public defenders. "I remember peering through a prison cell and talking with a boy who had been detained and tortured," she recalls. "He was just a boy who had tried to steal a bicycle and he had no one to defend him." At that time, there was little Karen or others could do. Governments throughout Asia, now under pressure from human rights activists, have passed laws outlawing torture and providing citizens with basic rights. By helping countries develop criminal justice systems to implement these laws, International Bridges to Justice (IBJ) is dramatically improving and even saving the lives of everyday citizens.
