Malaysia – Nooshin Erfani’s team wins the #justice prize in Global Innovation Competitio

Nooshin Erfani is the project coordinator of the The Wits Justice Project which won gold at the Making All Voices Count 2015 Global Innovation Competition in Jakarta. Out of 241 global ideas, the Citizen Justice Network was one of five finalists who won gold.

The Citizen Justice Network project aims to activate marginalized communities to fight miscarriages of justice.

It will train eight community activists across the country in basic journalism and the use of technology. Activists will be sourced from rural areas where platforms for reporting on stories of miscarriages of justice in the criminal justice system are minimal.

The project will enrich community radio and online media. It will provide local activists with an opportunity to expose stories not necessarily covered by mainstream journalists, bridging the gap between community and mainstream media.
