What will the agenda look like?

The World Justice Project is creating a collaborative agenda together with its partners, based around the themes of Access to Justice, Anti-Corruption and Open Government, and Equal Rights and Non-Discrimination. A draft agenda is available here, and we will continue to add more information as the Forum approaches. 

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.
