Avocats Sans Frontières (ASF) is an International Non-Governmental Organization created in 1992 in Brussels (Belgium). ASF's vocation is to promote, in complete independence, the achievement of a more just, equitable and united society in which law and justice are at the service of the most vulnerable individuals.
In this sense, ASF contributes to strengthening the social role of lawyers essential for the establishment or maintenance of the rule of law, the fight against impunity and for effective access of the most vulnerable to law and justice.
Since the end of 2017, ASF has resolutely turned to collaborative expertise and shared learning among its employees, but also with its partners and all members of its network which participates in the realization of the rule of law and the promotion of human rights.
In several countries such as Uganda, Burundi, DRC, Morocco and Indonesia, frameworks for the exchange of practices have emerged. These frameworks aim to promote horizontal capacity building (peer learning) and to develop joint initiatives in favor of access to justice, currently enabled by a five-year access to justice program funded by Belgian Development Cooperation
