Jakarta, 10 December 2012 , To mark ‘International Human Rights Day’ and to raise awareness about access to justice issues, the National Planning and Development Agency (BAPPENAS) and UNDP, through its ‘Strengthening Access to Justice in Indonesia’ (SAJI) project, will host the ‘Access to Justice Journalism Award (2012)’. The central theme of this year’s award is, ‘Fulfilling, Protecting and Honouring the Basic Rights of the Poor - Justice for All’.

The award is given to journalists and photographers whose works highlight the importance of access to justice issues. Entries must correspond to one of eight issues: law and judiciary reform; legal aid; local government management; land and natural resource management; women; children; migrant workers; as well as the rights of the poor and marginalized. These eight issues correspond to the ‘National Access to Justice Strategy’, released by BAPPENAS in 2009.
