UNODC's Global Judicial Integrity Network launch

April 09, 2018 - 9:05am

The United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) is launching today its Global Judicial Integrity Network in the presence of Chief Justices, judges and judicial professionals from around the world. Over 350 high-level members of the judiciary have gathered for this two-day event to discuss key topics with peers from other Member States, and to present recommendations on strengthening judicial integrity at the global level. The Network will provide a platform for judges to share good practices and lessons learned, and to support each other and join forces in developing new tools and guidelines for strengthening integrity and preventing corruption in the judicial system.

The Network's launch is the result of consultations with approximately 4,000 judges worldwide and seven regional preparatory meetings over a two-year period. The Network will serve as a platform to assist judiciaries everywhere to uphold judicial integrity, promote knowledge-building and peer learning, as well as provide access to a large database of thousands of resources, good practices and other judicial documents for immediate reference.
