Hakí addresses the power dynamics inherent to issues of inequality. In every country, in partnership with Hakí Network members, we support national-level policy advocacy on behalf of local communities and disadvantaged populations, with a focus on land and property rights. Our advocacy efforts are strategic and based on analysis from our legal services work that identifies structural policy and rights issues that require higher level assistance. In many instances advocacy with the government is carried out as part of our technical assistance through donor-funded projects.
Hakí publishes the annual Global Land Rights Index. The Index measures the legal framework status of community and individual land and resource rights in all countries through a combination of legislative framework and policy analysis and on the ground implementation. Write us for a copy of the methodology and latest results.
Hakí international experts also provide legal and advocacy training to our local NGO partners to improve their capacity to effectively advocate for change and use law as a tool toward reform of laws and their enforcement. Hakí has also developed an international network of public interest lawyers and legal clinics that provide legal resources to cases as needed.
