Mobilizer/Paralegal Codes of Conduct

An interesting question came up today from Namati’s program in Myanmar. There, they are working with their network of organizations to develop a standard (or template) Code of Conduct for paralegals. They were curious whether any Community Land Protection organizations use a Code of Conduct that their trained community member mobilizers/paralegals agree to and follow.

Do any of you use something like this? If so, could you share it or tell us about it?

In Uganda, LEMU calls them CSPs (Community Support Persons). There wasn’t any clearly defined code of conduct for the CSPs except for what they were expected to deliver. A training was organized to equip them with necessary skills, but no clearly defined code of conduct communicated.

I think this is such an interesting item to discuss and curious to hear what others have to say!
