Tze-Wei NGAugust 30, 2018
Strengthening the rule of law and improving access to justice have been central to Ms. Tze-Wei NG’s work for over a decade, and therefore seeing Goal 16 included in the post-MDG UN Development Agenda is very encouraging. In her current role, she mostly works with legal actors (lawyers, law students, legal NGOs etc.) and focuses on improving the legal processes (civil and criminal procedures, courts, legal aid system etc.). She is interested in this TIJ Workshop because she wants to learn more about how rule of law can be integrated in policy-making across policy areas, and also to meet peers with similar interests and passion from across the region. Moreover, many pressing justice issues today require a cross-border solution, e.g. anti-trafficking and pollution. Mutual understanding and collaboration are key to solving these challenges.
