Legal Pluralism and Human Rights 

JGG co-implemented a project with the National Human Rights Institution of Bolivia with financial support from Sida. I coordinated a team of five experts from various countries in the Americas including the Bolivia-based JGG consultant who acted as liaison with the Defensor del Pueblo of Bolivia.  The Just Governance Group provided methodological and technical expertise to the Indigenous Rights Program of the Defensor del Pueblo in the process “Defining Legal Pluralism” in Bolivia and co-organized a series of workshops and seminars involving indigenous justice authorities, public prosecutors, judges and personnel from the Defensor.  The JGG experts prepared academic papers on legal pluralism that examined indigenous peoples’ rights, indigenous justice systems, gender equality and intercultural dialogue with state justice systems in the context of constitutions reform.
