An interview with Namati’s Vivek Maru provides interesting insights into the goals of the network, its current projects and ambitions. Namati aspires to bring together advocates for access to justice and legal empowerment from around the world in order to avoid “reiventing the weel” efforts. According to Vivek many legal empowerment programs work in isolation and this inevitably leads every now and then to repetition of mistakes and omission of economies of scale.
