Programs & Events
In the few years since its founding in 2006, the WJP has helped give people in countries across the world greater understanding of the rule of law and with it, greater opportunities in nearly every part of their lives – from education, to health care, to property rights to fair and peaceful resolution of disputes. The WJP’s Engagement initiatives strive to make rule of law advancement as fundamental to the thinking and work of other professionals as it is to lawyers and judges.
One of the ways the WJP achieves reforms in rule of law is through on-the-ground programs conducted with leaders of government, businesses, civil society and individuals across work disciplines in countries throughout the world. The WJP convenes these leaders to find common ground, to examine how the fundamental importance of the rule of law matters in the everyday lives of people in their own communities and to incubate rule of law reforms.
Since 2006, the WJP has held three World Justice Forums and nine regional outreach meetings on five continents, attracting hundreds of leaders from more than one hundred countries. Learn more about our outreach.
Through our outreach, we inspire and support innovative new programs to advance the rule of law. Learn more about our programs.
