Laws affect the whole population of a country. Part of our work focuses on the most vulnerable people in society, such as those affected by human trafficking. (In September 2008, the Secretariat brought together representatives from international organisations and criminal justice agencies to look at ways in which we can help countries to combat this phenomenon).
All those brought before courts are affected in some way by the justice system. By improving laws we are affecting the lives and liberty of all people involved in this system. In our work we try and involve the whole spectrum of players in the administration of justice – from prison custodians to financial institutions that are involved in law making.
