Asia Justice and Rights, or AJAR, is a non-profit organization based in Jakarta that focuses on strengthening human rights in Asia and the Pacific. Its mission is to build cultures based on accountability and justice and to prevent the recurrence of state-sanctioned human rights violations. Combating impunity and building strong mechanisms to achieve accountability and respect for victims are essential elements in the quest for peace and prosperity. AJAR emphasizes south-south learning through regional training, workshops, exchanges, research studies, and advocacy initiatives. Culturally appropriate, innovative, and participatory methodologies are employed to ensure learning opportunities succeed and lessons are retained and applied. AJAR is committed to its vision of building just and accountable societies free from impunity. To achieve this, it applies a theory of change that envisages four building blocks: awareness raising, capacity development, social capital, and policy change. These blocks do not need to be sequential; they need to determine what is required and when.
