  • Organisation

    This project is led by a fiscal host based in Thailand called BABSEACLE Foundation with a regional partner called the International Drug Policy Consortium and a partner in Indonesia called Aksi Keadilan Indonesia or Indonesia Act for Justice. The latter was the implementing partner in the project called Spirit. AKSI is founded by a woman who used drugs and serves as a paralegal to ensure and advance the legal rights of her peers to improve their human rights and health outcomes.

    Aksi Keadilan Indonesia is now a registered organisation in Indonesia, where they have successfully built a core group of female drug user leaders with support from the previous regional Empowerment grant, and serves as the key technical lead for this grant.

    • Project

      The project INSPIRE or StrengthenINg and amplifying the voiceS of women andyoung People affected by punItive dRug policies in South EastAsia aims to enable and support women (including transgender women) and young people affected by punitive drug policies in Southeast Asia (Indonesia, Philippines, Malaysia, Thailand and Cambodia), including those who use drugs, formerly incarcerated and/or those that do sex work. These groups need to take action to generate change in the areas of improved access to justice, health and social services and space for political participation and civic engagement.

      The project works towards the longer term objectives of de-carceration and decriminalisation for low-level drug offences (including drug use and possession of drugs for personal use).

      It aims to see improved health and social outcomes for women and young people affected by punitive drug policies, specifically:

      • Increased awareness of their human rights especially the right to health and freedom from arbitrary detention which are violated due to practices such as incarceration being used as the primary method of drug rehabilitation programmes.
      • Increased understanding of how to take actions to assert their legal and human rights in relation to health and criminal justice systems, to address problems such as abusive law enforcement practices, disproportionate sentencing and over-incarceration.
      • Increased support for gender-sensitive approaches to the design and delivery of harm reduction- and human rights-oriented health and social services for women and girls affected by punitive drug policies, that acknowledge the multiple forms of gender-based violence they face.

      The project uses intersectional approaches to strengthen and build upon the relationships established among women and young people affected by punitive drug policies to increase their capacity to advocate for gender-sensitive and harm reduction-oriented approaches.

      This project is a continuation / deepening of https://voice.global/grantees/spirit/
