This year’s forum explored how law and justice contribute to better development outcomes through opportunity, inclusion and equity.
With a combination of plenary and parallel sessions, the event addressed challenging global development issues, including justice institutions’ response to social movements; innovative use of legal practices to secure sustainable management of natural resources; current issues on sovereign debt restructuring; the role of Islamic finance in the global financial system; and access to justice and inclusion for society’s most marginalized populations. The Law, Justice and Development Week 2012 also featured an India Day that explored, among other things, recent initiatives in India aimed at advancing social and economic rights.
Partners of the Global Forum on Law, Justice and Development had dedicated sessions and a meeting that presented the work of the thematic working groups, demonstration of the ICT platform and the work programs for 2013.
During the week, we aimed to continue building a strong vision and collaboration through active exchanges among lawyers from each of our institutions, judges, colleagues from other development organizations, government officials, academicians, civil society organizations and other experts in the field.
