Happy New Year! 

Let's make 2016 the year when law comes to life in our communities. 

How will we do it? Let's decide together. Please take 5 minutes to complete the annual member survey. This is your opportunity to shape our network's priorities for the coming year. 

In solidarity, 

Tobias, Abby, Michael, Stacey and Katie from the Network Team

Happy New Year! 2015 was quite the year for us all! For the first time world governments committed to "access to justice for all". The Global Goals for Sustainable Development have now begun and in 2016 these words must become action.

The past week has been an eye opener to me thanks to Namati CEO @vivekmaru and @lauragoodwin. On the 6-7th December 2015, I had the pleasure of visiting one of the community land projects in Tana River in Kenya. It might not been the first time for me to visit the area but my first to such a community facing gross difficulty in terms of their social and economic rights but still with determination that they shall win the battle. 

Network News: Strategic Thinking for 2016 
 Community Discussions

Dear all: As we look to a new year, I wanted to share some of the key outcomes from recent meetings of our network's advisory bodies. Their advice to the network, in combination with the regular input and feedback of network members like you, will help shape our priorities and activities in 2016.

Dear Participants of the Legal Empowerment Leadership Course: It was an honor and inspiration to meet you last week. @vivekmaru , @katiehill and I are warmed by our newfound fellowship and excited to move forward.

I wanted to share the following article on a style of negotiation tactic called "indaba" - a concept which comes from South Africa- which was utilised at the recent Climate Summit in Paris. Indaba is a good way to allow many conflicting parties to voice their views without stalling negotiations. Do any of you use this method in your work? What other useful methods do you use to allow for negotiation and consensus building?

Taking this opportunity to thank @vivekmaru@lauragoodwin, and @mustafa_mahmoud for having time to pass by Haki Centre office in Mombasa on 5th November 2015. We had a productive sharing discussions including our paralegals; shared on success, good practices, and comparison between Haki and NRF.
