Collaborating on Microjustice: the Toolkit conference 2011
It has been a while since the last update, following the conference in Cambodia in October. In this time, the knowledge and information that you contributed to the conference has been added to the toolkit. This has resulted in updates to all of the existing tools, and the creation 5 brand new ones! Of course, you can find and comment on all of these tools on this site.
Further projects are already being planned, with many people and organisations, and it would be great to have you involved! TISCO has some funding to help you work on all three of the microjustice projects (the toolbox, measuring and sharing rules projects). In the ‘Next Steps…’ document, below you can find some more information about the activities in each project. If you have other ideas, which are not in the document, do also get in contact.
You can also find a short report of the results of the evaluation of the conference attached below.
We look forward to working with you!
The Microjustice Team
The microjustice toolkit conference was held on the 24-26th of October 2011 in the Sunway Hotel, Phnom Penh. The conference was a great success with organisations attending from more than 10 countries as diverse as Azerbaijan, China, Egypt, Indonesia, Mali, the Netherlands, Rwanda, Thailand, the UK, and of course, Cambodia.
Thanks is extended to all of the organisations for their commitment and contribution to this conference. All the individuals who attended contributed a great deal in terms of time, information and energy. Without this contribution the conference we would not have achieved so much in such a short period of time
The three days saw a great deal of work being carried out to improve, contextualise, and develop the tools already available on the www.microjusticeworkplace.net site. The conference consisted of both plenary sessions learning about the work that is and has been carried out by the organisations present, as well as smaller workshops to further develop specific tools. Workshops were carried out on 24 of the tools, with partners coming to agreement about the content of the tools, as well as highlighting points where further improvement or contextualisation is needed.
Below you can see some pictures of the conference in action!
Following two and a half days of hard work, there was a field trip to talk to some beneficiaries of ADHOC services. This allowed the participants to gain some idea of the way that facilitations work in Cambodia, as well as providing a window into the difficulties and conflicts that make work like this so essential.
The conference produced a huge amount of information, knowledge, and innovation from all present. This information will now be added into the tools on this site, and further development will be taking place both on and off-line over the coming months.
There were a great many interesting presentations during the conference, and you can download each of these at the bottom of this page. In addition, you can download the latest version of the Basic Justice Care report, which was talked about in the presentation by Prof. Maurits Barendrecht.
Tools are never complete, and we will continue to work to improve them further. If you would like to get involved in developing and improving tools, simply register on the site (click here) to get started!
