Commitment to Action

Judicial Advisory Group (JAG)

Commitment by

Protimos

In 2009, Protimos committed to launch a small regional Judicial Advisory Group (JAG) in Sub-Saharan Africa to provide legal support to indigenous and marginalized communities vulnerable to exploitation and corruption by empowering their local judiciaries. In support of this commitment, the JAG will model its approach in a select group of countries and then target communities across all of Sub-Saharan Africa. Ultimately, Protimos aims to expand into other regions.
