Our Main Programs
We believe in partnerships and collective action to enhance the work of civil society organizations.
The School of Justice
In 2019 Justice Call launched “the School of Justice program”, which aims to build the capacities of young lawyers in the MENA region and enable them to practice their work safely. This happens through training and workshops that acquaint them with the rights and duties inherent to lawyers based on the local constitutions, law, and international standards.
Moreover, the School of Justice aims to familiarize these lawyers with international human rights and train them to deploy the associated instruments. The School of Justice provides the attendees with the technical and digital knowledge necessary to perform their work efficiently and safely in the digital sphere, which includes an introduction to basic and best practices of digital safety and safe communication, and the associated tools.
The Women’s Regional Network on Prevention (WRNP)
The Women’s Regional network on Prevention (WRNP) is a thematic network of Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) with the objective of advancing women’s role in raising awareness and building capacity in the prevention of atrocity crimes, including advancing awareness on the gendered aspects of atrocity crimes. The Regional Network on Prevention was co-launched by Justice Call and the UN office for Genocide Prevention and Responsibility (UN OSAPG), with support of the Global Partnership for the Prevention of Armed Conflict (GPPAC). WRNP aims to promote meaningful women’s participation in shaping policies and practices related to women, peace, and security, and the prevention of atrocity crimes in the MENA region. We do this by sharing knowledge, experiences and best practices, and highlighting and tackling issues and risks faced by activists working on the ground.
The MENA Coalition for Youth, Peace and security (MCYPS)
Justice Call believes that the only way to prevent conflicts and build peace is by respecting human rights and universally recognized fundamental freedoms, especially the right to peaceful assembly, freedom of opinion and expression, freedom of press and organization. We also contend that most of the conflicts in the Arab region are caused by corruption, dictatorship and the absence of justice.
Because this can only be achieved through collective action, Justice call co-launched the MENA coalition for Youth Peace and Security (MCYPS) to act as a youth platform that promotes the role of youth in achieving development, peace and stability in the MENA region, through collective efforts that is based on the principles of solidarity, justice, inclusion, diversity and human rights.
Educating for justice and peace
“There is no peace without development, and there is no development without peace, and none of the above without respect for human rights and the rule of law.”
