The Asia Pro Bono Conference & Access to Justice Exchange (APBC&A2JX) is a key event in the region for stakeholders to develop, explore and share pro bono initiatives and projects that strengthen access to justice in Asia and global. The APBC&A2JX is an exciting mix of carefully curated plenaries, break-outs, interactive workshop sessions and networking events including APBC&A2JX proceedings and focusing on community capacity building, teaching and the educational aspects of pro bono work, as well as clinical learning for tertiary students and future practitioners.
This year, at the 10th Asia Pro Bono Virtual Conference, Centre for Peace and Justice (CPJ), Brac University had the opportunity to present on “Advocacy for Justice and Accountability for Rohingya”. The panel consisted of Kingsley Abbott, International Commission of Jurists; Tun Khin, President, BROUK; along with members from Centre from Peace and Justice – Manzoor Hasan, Executive Director; Ahmed Shafquat Hassan, Research Assistant; M Sanjeeb Hasan, Visiting Fellow; and Jessica Olney, Visiting Researcher. The session was moderated by Shahariar Sadat, Director, Academic & Legal Empowerment, Centre for Peace and Justice
Each member of the panel took 7 minutes to provide updates and share their views on the Rohingya crises and possible ways of combatting the problems. The session was well received, and the panellists found themselves engaging with an audience from all around the world – some even in remote locations.
