Capacity development for local elites for better justice in the chars

Access to justice is challenging for the rural poor and marginalized living in the chars (riverine island) and coastal areas of Bangladesh because of their limited financial ability and lack of understanding of the justice systems. In the absence of specified law, process and accountability, the village court (shalish) are known for imposing subjective notion of justice by the socially, economically or religiously powerful people. The Good Governance sector of Friendship organized leadership training for local elites on ‘Shalish & Village Court” for their capacity development in regard to the informal justice system and arbitration. The training was held in Gaibandha from 4th-5th March 2017. A total of 30 char elites attended the training.
Last year,140 influential char elites attended advocacy workshops and received information on ‘State Laws and Justice System’ related to the effective functioning of the Shalish (Informal Justice System).
