Interests: Citizenship, Community / Customary Land Rights, Gender-based violence
I work at the Ministry of Justice as Coordinator of Institutional Affairs of the Centers for Access to Justice (CAJs). These are public offices that provide legal and community services to people who are in a disadvantage situation. The main objective is to ensure the full exercise of the rights and equality of opportunities.
The CAJs have an interdisciplinary working model. This consist in giving information and orientation through legal aid. But also giving psychological and social, to different circumstances that affect the rights of the inhabitants of the most neglected communities. The basic team is composed by lawyers, psychologists, social workers and community mediators. The psychosocial team of the CAJ -composed of social workers and psychologists- attends those problems that exceed the legal field, allowing the problems to be addressed from legal aspects, social and emotional.
