#SDG16 specifies how access to justice is essential for sustainable and inclusive growth and a precondition for progress on other SDGs on access to health, education, equality for women, and so on.

For us to succeed in sustainable development, we need to be willing to challenge our justice systems and be open to new ways of thinking.

The good news is that we live in an age of opportunity from which justice sectors worldwide are benefitting: big data, innovation and technology, new skills in mediation, new forms of finance, and international opportunities to exchange experiences.


We are honored that Lady Chief Justice Sophia Akuffo from Ghana and Lady Justice Irene Mambilina from Zambia will share their knowledge at this Hague Talks and describe their experiences from the African continent.

This event is co-organized by RVOHumanity Hub and AFIL.
