On 6, 7 and 8 February The Hague, in the incomparable setting of its Peace Palace, held a series of conferences to mark 2019 as the year dedicated to justice, contributing to the mobilisation and commitment to the fulfilment of SDG´s 16.3.
This will culminate in the High Level Political Forum in July and the SDG´s Summit in September, which will review progress towards SDG 16 and Agenda 2030.
The forum held this week in The Hague has discussed the opportunities and challenges in achieving the goal of justice for all, as well as strategies to accelerate access to justice at national and international level.
The forum was opened by Sigrid Kaag, Minister of Foreign Trade and Development Cooperation of the Netherlands, co-hosted with the Ministers of Justice of Argentina and Sierra Leone and the group formed by The Elders.
150 experts, mainly those who have contributed to the Working Group on Justice over the course of a whole year, met to discuss and strengthen the recommendations needed to access greater justice and the way forward.
