Team

Team

The Natural Justice team is comprised of a diverse group of people and partners with collective expertise in many different disciplines and thematic areas, as well as practical experience in all regions. We currently have 8 full-time Association members who work closely with each other on virtually all aspects of our work. They are supported by three consultants and one support staff  who work closely with the Association members in the different regions. Eleven associates around the world provide a network of skills and expertise and contribute to our work on an ad hoc basis, particularly through the provision of technical advice. Fellows are highly committed individuals who volunteer with Natural Justice for more than six months and work closely with one or more staff members on focused activities. We have hosted 9 interns and volunteers and currently have three in our Cape Town office. They have participated in activities such as communications, workshops, desktop legal research, and supporting community-based organizations.

Two international advisors act in an honorary capacity to assist Natural Justice with key areas of legal advice and strategic organizational management. We have a wide array of partners with whom we collaborate closely on various aspects of our work, including community-based organizations, non-profit organizations and networks, intergovernmental organizations, academic institutions, and government agencies. We are also members of several networks and observers to three multilateral processes.
