Partnership Forum

Held annually in conjunction with IDLO’s Assembly of Parties, the Partnership Forum is a platform for interactive dialogue to stimulate innovative thinking and facilitate partnerships on rule of law, peace and development.

The Forum's objective is to stimulate and strengthen dialogue among policy makers, academia and development practitioners around IDLO's mission to create a world where everyone lives with dignity and under the rule of law. In particular it will focus on the strides made and obstacles encountered in advancing Goal 16 towards just, peaceful and inclusive societies, access to justice and the rule of law. The outcomes of the Forum’s dialogues will feed into the global Task Force on Justice deliberations and the United Nations High-Level Political Forum in July 2019.
