Civil Society Legislation Workshop

Pacific Civil Society Law Programme
Laws and Legislation Affecting Community Organisations in Vanuatu
USP Law School conference room
Wednesday 24th May, 2006

International Center for Not-for-Profit Law is organising a one-day Roundtable on "Laws and Legislation Affecting Community Organizations in Vanuatu." The roundtable will be held in the conference facilities at the University of the South Pacific in Port Vila, on May 24, 2006, beginning at 8:30 a.m.

As part of the NZAID-funded Pacific Civil Society Law Programme, this roundtable presents an opportunity for a comprehensive look at the legal framework governing community organizations in Vanuatu. In particular, attention will be paid to its impact on the provision of essential social services desired by both the people and the government.

It is anticipated that government officials will have an opportunity to raise and discuss issues of mutual concern, and civil society leaders will be able to raise their own issues and comment on the matters raised in the government session as well. There will also be opportunities for looking forward strategically and exploring a process of engagement to bring about reforms of the legal framework to benefit all parties.
