Producing animated videos and graphical training materials on International Justice processes relating to Rohingya crisis

LAW:

Founded in July 2013, Legal Action Worldwide (LAW) is an international non-profit organization headquartered in Geneva. LAW takes a survivor centered, gender sensitive approach to creative legal strategies to improve access to justice and provide legal redress to the most vulnerable in conflict-affected and fragile regions.

LAW undertakes a number of cutting-edge projects and global campaigns to support communities that have suffered grave human rights violations across Africa, Middle East and South Asia.

LAW in Bangladesh

LAW’s ground-breaking Rohingya Crisis programme seeks to ensure meaningful Rohingya participation in the ongoing international justice processes pertaining to their treatment in Myanmar, including: the case before the International Court of Justice (ICJ) on the application of the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide (The Gambia v. Myanmar); the ongoing investigation by the Officer of the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court (ICC) and the work of the Independent Investigative Mechanism on Myanmar (IIMM). LAW works closely with the different legal teams working within these mechanisms. Additionally, LAW undertakes innovative strategic litigation on behalf of Rohingya and ensures Rohingya voices are prioritized throughout its advocacy. LAW works with the Rohingya community to alleviate the cultural stigma and feelings of shame that prevent victims from accessing the medical and psycho-social support that they need to manage their trauma.

Overview:

LAW is running a project aimed at empowering Rohingya refugees to be aware of the ongoing international justice and accountability mechanisms pertaining to the persecution faced by them in Myanmar. This will be achieved inter alia through a widespread awareness-building initiative amongst Rohingya refugees regarding international justice processes and gender equality. The information campaign will target Rohingya women, youth and marginalized groups, ensuring that the legal awareness reaches a wide cross-section of the community. LAW’s experience in working closely with Rohingya women and survivors of sexual and gender-based violence, including the male survivors and hijra populations will be drawn upon to ensure that the information delivery is undertaken in a gender-sensitive, age-sensitive, and trauma-informed manner.
