ILF- Nepal Hosts Study Tour
ILF- Nepal hosted a study tour last week for representatives from the Commonwealth Human Rights Initiative (CHRI) and the Human Rights Law Network (HRLN). Both organizations are based in New Delhi, India and are working on developing public defender centers and models in various states around India. Representatives of these organizations learned from the successful ILF model of constant mentoring and persistent litigation, and discussed key legal issues surrounding the rights, and early representation, of the accused in India. The tour was organized by the Open Society Foundations’ Global Criminal Justice Fund.
