ABOUT JUSTICE WITHOUT BORDERS

We are a regional not-for-profit organisation that works to enable access to justice for victims of labour exploitation and human trafficking, even after they return home. In just seven years, we have been able to achieve groundbreaking results for those who need help the most. As demand for our work grows, we are looking to expand our team to answer the growing needs of the migrant workers we support.

Focusing on key countries in the Asia-Pacific region, our work includes legal support for clients (including litigation and research), capacity building for community organisations on the ground, and network building that brings together pro bono law firms and community service organizations. Our work is all aimed at building access to justice that is efficient, effective and affordable for migrant workers, no matter where they happen to be.
