About Justice Without Borders 

JWB is a regional non-profit building access to justice for migrant workers, even after they return home.

JWB’s work empowers women to hold abusers accountable and secure just compensation. Serving key migration routes in Southeast Asia, JWB has operations across Hong Kong, Indonesia, Singapore and the Philippines. The organisations operate at the intersection of economic empowerment and access to justice.

Key work includes:

  •  Addressing the issues that survivors and their lawyers face in bringing cross-border claims
  • Scaling up impact by educating and empowering a growing network of leaders in migrant worker communities, frontline NGOs, pro bono legal aid, and government agencies.
  • Sharing best practices and resources across the region, drawing JWB’s work and collaboration with leading law firms and corporate organisations.

In the past decade, JWB has successfully litigated all of the most common harms that migrant workers in its target countries face. Experiences from this impact litigation have started making access to justice just as mobile as migrant workers. The lessons learned have fuelled skills-building trainings that have turned local caseworkers into effective advocates for transnational claims. JWB’s first decade of success now sets the stage for a movement that will turn the extraordinary of transnational justice into the ordinary. We invite you to join us in our next decade of work.
