Violence Prev/Peace Promotion Panelist
Now is the time to build a new legal system prioritizing: First things first, "child safety matters hugely for an overall sense of safety"; translational justice; building the state's capacity to manage its own rule of law needs, critical to confidence building and to reach marginalized groups. "Parents innately want to do right by their children but they have to be given the chance."
