Junior Assistant - Legal advice and project management
Description of the work as a Junior Expert:
I worked on a project which aimed to put in place support and assistance to the land restitution process. This project was part of a larger programme of BTC to support land reform in South Africa after the end of apartheid. It was to develop a 10-year strategy aiming to contribute to the creation of sustainable livelihoods and economic development for the chief beneficiaries of the land restitution process. This assistance included training and capacity building in order to put in place a system that would impede past inequalities from hindering the prospects of the new beneficiary landowners’ rural projects.
