These are dark days if you care about justice. Power and wealth are extremely concentrated. Authoritarianism and nativism have gained ground. And we are speeding towards environmental collapse.
Law is supposed to be one of our most powerful tools for advancing justice. But for billions of people around the world, the law is broken. It’s an abstraction—or worse, a threat. Namati and members of the Legal Empowerment Network advance social and environmental justice by building a movement of people who know, use, and shape the laws that affect them.
Our Theory of Change
Namati is a learning organization. With our partners and our network members, we are continually working to understand how best to advance justice through legal empowerment.
To date, we have authored or co-authored over 200 publications, including books, policy briefs, essays, peer-reviewed articles, and guides for practitioners.
