The Innovating Justice Forum 2019
From Justice Innovation to Scale
How do we get data, innovation, and funding together in a real transition that produces user-friendly justice at scale?
On 5 and 6 February 2019, HiiL will organize the 9th annual Innovating Justice Forum. A unique event which brings together a large group of justice leaders, politicians, diplomats, international organisations, entrepreneurs, academics, civil society and many more, in order to highlight the opportunities that new technologies, investments and data are creating to make justice accessible for all, and create concrete plans to ensure these opportunities are seized. The aim is to demonstrate that change is possible, also in the justice sector.
Whether it’s advocating for new and better policies or supporting innovators and disruptors who are eager for change, the Innovating Justice Forum is an important global platform to discuss how a more equitable and fair future for all can be achieved.
The Forum is connected to a meeting of the international Justice Task Force, part of a global initiative called Pathfinders for Peaceful, Just, and Inclusive Societies. The Task Force works to encourage an acceleration in the provision of justice to people and communities outside the current protection of the law, in line with SDG 16.3 and related targets on justice.
The programme is currently being finalized but some names of persons participating in the Forum can already be shared: Dr. Juan Botero, Executive Director of World Justice Project, who will discuss the challenges of scaling up innovations. Mr Marten Kaevats, National Digital Advisor of Estonia will discuss digital innovation for the government, including the opportunities afforded by artificial intelligence. Sara Hossain, lawyer at the Supreme Court of Bangladesh, will discuss in one of the breakout sessions on how we can use data to make real impact.
Also there will be pitches of the best justice innovations of 2018.
