The Vietnam Governance for Inclusive Growth project strengthens private sector competitiveness, enhances rule of law, and promotes greater social and economic inclusion for all citizens. As part of this initiative, the project is collaborating with government and civil society to strengthen public consultation around Vietnam’s Civil Code.
This photo features ICS, a civil society organization representing the LGBT community, which has engaged with the Ministry of Justice to provide inputs to the revision of the law. The Revised Civil Code reflects Vietnam’s 2013 Constitution, which sets forth a more progressive recognition of human rights for Vietnam to date.
"In Focus" is an occasional series highlighting photos from Chemonics' work around the world.
