ABOUT THE HAGUE JUSTICE WEEK 2023
Access to Justice at the Local, National and International Levels
The many challenges to peace in 2023, including unjustified wars, human suffering, and ecological degradation, offer momentum to the work of increasing access to justice at a local, national and international level.
This work also leads more broadly to the possibility of strengthening the quality of accountability, open government, just laws, and impartial justice. How can we ensure that the steps we are taking to create equal access to justice are impactful at the local, national and international levels?
Global peace and justice require global collaboration. During the Hague Justice Week, actors of all levels come together, interact and try to find answers to global challenges through the scope of justice.
A space built by many for meaningful exchange connecting practitioners, policymakers, researchers, students and other individuals from all sectors. We seek to be as inclusive and high-quality as possible, advancing from year to year.
The Hague Project Peace and Justice (HPPJ) invites organisations aimed at increasing access to justice to be part of the 2nd Annual Hague Justice Week from 5-9 June 2023
Hague Justice Week provides a platform for discussion and collaboration among rule of law and justice practitioners, scholars, and business entrepreneurs from The Hague and around the world. It creates learning opportunities and an innovation-friendly environment. It is a safe space to meet, exchange and work across silos, generations and disciplines to get to actionable takeaways.
This year’s theme is Making Impact. It will ask participants to focus on how the work being done to increase access to justice makes an impact at the local, national, and international levels.
The results of these conversations will be used to inform policy-making within The Hague and beyond, including at the upcoming Agenda 2030 Stock Taking Summit in September 2023 in New York, organized as part of the UN General Assembly.
