The coming year will provide several important opportunities for advancing the rule of law and delivering on the promise of justice for all. Taking advantage of this political moment requires a coordinated effort to develop a shared understanding of why the rule of law and justice are important and what we can do about it. Convened under the theme of “Realizing Justice for All,” World Justice Forum VI will:
Highlight key research findings on the relationship between justice and sustainable development;
Showcase successful solutions that deliver justice and strengthen the rule of law;
Foster multi-sectoral collaboration; and
Mobilize commitments to increase access to justice.
As a meeting place for governmental and non-governmental actors, private sector leaders, and the donor community, the Forum will address the principal challenges to delivering justice and provide space for advancing concrete solutions. We intend for the outcomes of World Justice Forum VI to feed directly into the UN High Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 16 in July and the UN Summit on the SDGs in September.
The Task Force on Justice, an initiative of the Pathfinders for Peaceful, Just and Inclusive Societies will present their report at the Opening Plenary, defining the opportunity for the justice movement in 2019.
