Students of the Department of Law of American International University-Bangladesh (AIUB) took part in a two-day regional conference at Nabab Nawab Ali Chowdhury Senate Bhaban in Dhaka University (DU) recently.

The conference titled “South Asia Regional Conference on Gender, Rights and Choices: Access to Justice in a Megacity” began on March 19, says a press release.    

A team of 20 students of the university attended the second day of the conference on March 20 under the leadership of Prof Dr Taslima Monsoor, Adviser of Law of AIUB.

This was part of a student development initiative for law students undertaken by Md Khalid Rahman, faculty member of the Department of Law, AIUB.

The conference was  organised  jointly by SHOKHI  project, Bangladesh  Legal  Aid  and  Services  Trust,  Marie  Stopes Bangladesh, Bangladesh Women’s Health Coalition and  the Faculty of Law of the University of Dhaka. The embassy of the Netherlands in Dhaka supported the event.

It aimed to share experiences  about  systems  and  processes  for  ensuring  access  to  justice  in mega cities, particularly on gender-based violence, and to understand how multi-sectoral interventions on healthcare,  social  security,  community  solidarity  building,  livelihood  and  shelter  can  increase  access  to justice.
