Thanks to my AUP and Oxford training, I am managing a team at the Special Court for Sierra Leone in Freetown to produce a book on Gender Justice and the unique gender jurisprudence of the Court, as well as the new gender laws recently passed in Sierra Leone. It will be written on a basic level so that women and girls will know their rights and where they can go for protection.
