Interview with Dr. Tanja Chopra, Research Team Lead

The Expanding Access to Justice Program (EAJ) is a five-year associate award (2018-2023), funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) via the Freedom House-led Human Rights Support Mechanism (HRSM) and implemented in partnership between Pact and the American Bar Association Rule of Law Initiative (ABA-ROLI). The Program aims to improve access to justice and mechanisms to address grievances in Somalia and Somaliland. To learn more about how the EAJ deals with the reality of legal pluralism in Somalia, and how it builds upon the existing institutions and authorities to assist people in accessing justice, listen to this interview with Dr. Tanja Chopra, EAJ’s Research Team Leader. The interview was hosted by Professor Erica Harper, from the Van Vollenhoven Institute for Law, Governance and Society at the University of Leiden, on September 9th, 2020.
