Introduction: 

In South and Southeast Asia we work with local people to improve public security and access to justice, and advise on how businesses can operate in a conflict-sensitive way.

Gender-responsive justice

Nepal has a complex informal justice system, with an array of traditional, indigenous and religious mechanisms. This system contributes massively to enhancing access to justice in the country, especially for rural, poor and marginalised people.

Conflict data in the Philippines

Data on conflicts in the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM) in the Philippines will now be available online, with the launch of the Bangsamoro Conflict Monitoring System (BCMS) website.

Island trading in the Philippines

Women traders in the Philippines province of Sulu met in the island’s capital, Jolo, on 28 February, to discuss legalising their trade.

The women make their living by selling Malaysian-made goods without government permits. The province’s proximity to what is now Malaysia’s northernmost state, Sabah, has facilitated an age-old trade between traders from the two communities.

Promoting peaceful development in Myanmar

Myanmar is a country in transition. Since 2010, a series of democratic reforms have opened up the country to new opportunities. There is hope that this process might bring about the social, economic and political reforms necessary to finally establish conditions for peace in the country, after decades of civil war and authoritarian rule.
