Defamation Law for Advocacy NGOs – Online Training and Self-Assessment Guide
November 10, 2015
This project gives advocacy and campaigning NGOs free online tools to understand English defamation law so they can check the vast majority of their publications for defamation risks themselves, saving paid-for and pro bono legal services for specific, more technical points.
The training and self-assessment tool will be developed by A4ID in partnership with leading defamation barristers and in consultation with relevant NGOs, so that they are legally correct but also engaging and user-friendly.
This will mean that NGOs acting in the public interest to expose serious misconduct will be able to do so responsibly and without jeopardising the work of their organisations.
