Microjustice Team

Patricia van Nispen tot Sevenaer – Microjustice End-Legal Advisor
Patricia van Nispen tot Sevenaer set up the Microjustice4All foundation in 1996, and has developed Microjustice ever since. She has lead the organization through its different phases: its start in the former Yugoslavia working on the post-war rehabilitation of refugees, the development of Microjustice as a sustainable way to provide legal services in the international development cooperation, its start in Latin America and further development in Africa, and its pioneering work in regards to the Legal Inclusion Mapping Program.
Patricia always wanted to do what she is doing now. This is why after her Masters in Law, she continued her postgraduate studies in International Relations and became inspired to focus on the ‘human aspects’ of international relations as to her this is something that seemed to be lacking. According to her, a precondition for democracy and durable peace is that all people are protected and integrated in the system; thus, instead of speaking of abstract concepts such as ‘States’, one has to look beyond this concept:the people living within that State need to be protected. In Microjustice she has found the perfect way to engage in this in a structural way. Prior to creating Microjustice, she worked with a commercial law firm in Amsterdam (Houthoff Buruma; 1990-94) and with the UN in Rwanda, Malawi and Croatia (1994-96).

Our team in Bolivia

Maria Choque Ajata has been the Director of the Foundation Microjusticia Bolivia since 2010.
In 2007 she was a member of the team that founded the first Microjustice program in the world. This experience changed her life completely: working for an organization dedicated at giving legal assistance to the most vulnerable part of the population gave her the opportunity to be a part of positive change.
Today, she still finds much satisfaction in her work to promote changes in the Bolivian legal system and she plans to keep working for this objective for a long time. She considers herself a transparent person with stable principles and a deep respect for other people. She is convinced that any change in society starts with one-self.

He joined Microjustice (when it was stilled called: International Alliances) in 2000 as facilitator in the field, working with the refugees in Serbia, providing legal and psychological assistance. In 2005 he returned to Vukovar to work as office manager on the cross-border program obtaining documents for refugees-helping directly thousands people. Since 2010 he is the head of program.
