When is the World Justice Forum?

The Forum will take place May 30 - June 3, 2022 at the World Forum in The Hague, Netherlands and online. We encourage in-person participants to arrive in The Hague on Sunday, May 29 or early on Monday, May 30 in order to take part in our welcome program beginning the afternoon of May 30.

What will the agenda look like?

The program will include dynamic plenary discussions, interactive working sessions, the Justice Expo exhibition hall, off-site visits to explore local initiatives in The Hague, presentation of the World Justice Challenge finalists and winners, cultural activities including music, dance and cartoonists, and much more. The developing agenda is available here

What is a hybrid conference?

The World Justice Forum will be held in a hybrid format that will entail both in-person and online interactive meetings, plenaries, and working sessions. For those joining online, the Forum will include opportunities for participation in live-streamed plenaries and online-only working sessions, as well as options for virtual networking with anyone registered for the event, including in-person participants. Plenary sessions also will be recorded for later viewing. In-person participants will be able to join all aspects of the program in The Hague, including networking and cultural events, off-site visits, hands-on interactive working sessions, and the Justice Expo arena.
