LAW & Norwegian Church Aid: 5 Key Guidelines for Providing Remote Legal Aid to GBV Survivors
Gender Equality & GBV - Global - Legal Aid & Empowerment
On 2 July 2020, LAW and Norwegian Church Aid (NCA) published: 5 Key Guidelines for Providing Remote Legal Aid to GBV Survivors.
This year we have seen states worldwide implementing restrictions on movement and an increase in gender-based violence globally, leaving legal aid providers facing new challenges in service provision.
In order to circumvent these challenges and ensure that GBV survivors can exercise their human rights effectively, through accessing legal aid, NCA and LAW have developed a guidance document for providing legal aid services when it is not possible to meet your client.
LAW and NCA hope that these guidelines and tips will assist legal aid providers to continue providing fundamental and life-saving services in the difficult circumstances caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, or similar emergency situations.
