Description

Religious minorities and low-income citizens are often unaware of their rights, unable to access justice institutions, and subject to discrimination and stigma. Civil society organizations (CSOs) focused on rights and justice issues exist, but are only easily accessible in urban centers and often suffer from organizational deficiencies. In a country as diverse as Indonesia, ensuring fair access to justice can mend societal divides, bring closure to latent grievances and enhance political and social stability at all levels.
