Hi @DavinaWadleySNAP Do you mind writing a small narration on the link you shared? It could help the readers get an insight of the content of the report.

Thanks for sharing this publication, @DavinaWadleySNAP! I edited your post above to include the description you sent later. If you could point out some questions or points in particular from the report that should be of interest to members of the global legal empowerment network, that would also be a big help.
