1. Building the Case: Why Business Needs to be Part of the Movement Towards Global Access to Justice

Tuesday, April 30  |  13:00 - 14:30

Summary: The business community undoubtedly has a significant interest in justice and strong Rule of Law. But how can the business community take a leading role in achieving the SDGs and closing the justice gap, and how do global developments – such as the rise of populism, the migration crisis, and climate change – affect this? This working session will explore the business case for greater engagement by business on justice and the Rule of Law, and identify ways champions in the business community can promote those efforts.
