The rule of law is emerging as one of the most pressing issues of this century. It is a cornerstone of peace, security, justice and development.
What's New At IDLO
Today, we commemorate World Health Day 2020 in the midst of a global health crisis which is growing exponentially, overwhelming hospitals and healthcare systems across the world. COVID-19 has suddenly upended the lives of millions in profound ways.
Court Annexed Mediation was rolled out in Mombasa for the Tononoka Children’s Court. The project, led by the Alternative Dispute Resolution Task Force of the Kenyan Judiciary, and supported by IDLO, will set an example for the rest of the country on how Mediation enhances access to justice for children and offer protection for children within the justice systems.
Disclaimer: This event was organized at the beginning of March 2020, before the Kenyan Government put in place restrictions to protect the population from the global Covid-19 pandemic.
The forthcoming Annual Meeting of the Assembly of Parties will take place on 24 November 2020.
The Assembly of Parties is IDLO's highest decision-making body. It is composed of Representatives of all Member Parties, which are signatories to the Establishment Agreement of IDLO, with the regular session held in Rome each year.
IDLO has actively supported a wide range of e-justice initiatives in the Kyrgyz Republic to improve the efficiency, transparency and accountability of the judiciary through digital technologies.
Documents will be made available in due course.
The Member Parties that should require access to the online depository can contact the Secretariat of IDLO at secretariat[at]idlo.int.
