Power Tool: Legal literacy camps (PLA 53)

Sonja Vermeulen

Journal article

‘Panchayat Shivir’ is used here as a Hindi term for Interactive Legal Literacy Camp. Law trainers may use it to aid tribal self-rule in India or other forms of decentralisation. Trainers may also use this tool in other countries that are progressing towards decentralised governance.

Guest-editor: Sonja Vermeulen. This special issue of PLA comes from the Power Tools initiative which aimed to develop, test and circulate existing and new tools to bridge key gaps in policy processes and content. These policy tools – tips, tactics and approaches – provide practical help to people working to improve the policies and institutions that govern access to and use of natural resources.

Participatory Learning and Action (PLA, formerly PLA Notes) is the world's leading series on participatory learning and action approaches and methods. PLA publishes articles on participation aimed at practitioners, researchers, academics and activists. All articles are peer-reviewed by an international editorial board. See: www.planotes.org
