Since 2007, Justice Centre has worked for a fair & just society in Hong Kong
Hong Kong is home
We work in partnership with community members across Hong Kong, challenging inequality with the ultimate aim of benefitting all Hong Kongers. We use research, policy, and community-centred advocacy to support, defend, and protect those who are most vulnerable to violations of their rights.
We provide direct assistance to those who have faced violations, helping them begin to heal by working to put laws and policies in place to make sure those violations don’t happen again.
And when community members’ rights and personal wellbeing are under threat, we assist with asylum claims, use strategic litigation to set precedent, and work to ensure that others don’t someday face the same mistreatment.
At a time when people are sharing their stories through digital media and making issues of injustice more visible than ever, Justice Centre is focused on bringing visibility to Hong Kong communities that are too often ignored or forgotten – and helping them tell their stories in cases where they’re unable to do so themselves.
From working to ensure that refugees, victims of torture and human trafficking have legal representation to challenging laws that reinforce disparities and negative social outcomes for women, children, racial and ethnic minorities, and LGBTQ individuals, Justice Centre uses policy, advocacy, and direct action services to help realise a fairer, just, and equitable Hong Kong.

Towards a Fairer Society
We envision Hong Kong as a fair and inclusive society where even the most marginalised enjoy fundamental rights and access to justice.
We advocate on behalf of Asylum seekers – Refugees – Victims of torture – Victims of human trafficking and of forced labour (including HK Residents).
We provide free, independent, high-quality legal and social welfare assistance to asylum seekers, refugees, victims of torture and survivors of human trafficking and forced labour.
