Vivek Maru shares insights at World Justice Forum

In this video, Namati CEO Vivek Maru speaks on the Economic and Legal Empowerment panel at the 2013 World Justice Forum.  The discussion focuses on modern methods of legal empowerment such as government programs that raise awareness of vulnerable citizens’ constitutional rights; safeguards and regulations that ensure access to justice; the right to counsel; and access to formal business and financial mechanisms. Panelists also highlight innovative solutions to closing the gap between passing a law in the halls of parliament and the reality of that law as experienced by the poor. Maru was joined on the panel by legal empowerment experts Stephen Golub (School of Law, UC Berkeley), Faustina Pereira (BRAC), and Yasmin Batliwala (Advocates for International Development); Zaza Namoradze (Open Society Justice Initiative) moderated.
