Justice Centre Hong Kong

JCHKJustice Centre Hong Kong is a leading nonprofit human rights organisation working to protect the rights of vulnerable groups in Hong Kong: refugees and victims of torture, human trafficking and forced labour.
Justice Centre Hong Kong works to protect the rights of refugees and asylum seekers, survivors of torture, human trafficking and forced labour. The organisation's vision is for Hong Kong to be a fair and inclusive society where even the most marginalised enjoy fundamental rights and access to justice. The mission is to enable clients to access their rights through legal and psychosocial support, policy, advocacy and research while strengthening the rule of law in Hong Kong.
Justice Centre was historically Hong Kong Refugee Advice Centre (HKRAC) founded in 2007 and was the first and only non-governmental organisation in Hong Kong to provide free and vital legal aid to vulnerable refugees seeking protection through the UN refugee agency’s Refugee Screening Determination process. The organisation was relaunched as Justice Centre Hong Kong in 2014, expanding its services to assist all refugees seeking protection via the Unified Screening Mechanism, as well as working on human trafficking and forced labour issues in Hong Kong.

Strategic Thematic Direction

During 2011-13, through our Power in Migration and Work thematic programme, we engaged more directly with the migrant rights and labour rights movements. During 2014-2016 our work will build on the work of previous years; we will continue to push for a human rights based approach in anti-trafficking policies and practices.  We will also deepen our engagement with the issue of migration and labour.

The three thematic strategic issues outlined below are continuations of our work during 2011-13.

ACCOUNTABILITY Increasing the accountability of all anti-trafficking stakeholders involved in the design or implementation of anti-trafficking responses, towards the persons whose human rights they purport to protect.

ACCESS TO JUSTICE Broadening spaces for trafficked persons and migrant workers to practice their human rights by improving access to justice and combating all forms of discrimination that impact women’s ability to exercise their human rights as they relate to trafficking.

POWER IN MIGRATION AND WORK Centring an analysis of women’s power in their labour and migration to better assess migration and labour policies’ impact on women, and to work towards labour and migration processes that reflect migrants’ needs, aspirations and capabilities.
