Each year, the Law, Justice and Development (LJD) week brings together World Bank Group staff, senior officials from other international financial institutions, international development practitioners, government officials, lawyers, judges, scholars and representatives from civil society.
LJD Week 2015 will explore the role of Governance and the Law in the social and economic advancement of nations, with a focus on the value of law in producing sustainable development outcomes, in expressing justice, and in serving as a catalyst for justice from different perspectives.
LJD Week 2015 will also explore topics related to the Middle East and North of Africa Region and to the World Bank Group and International Financial Institutions.
As in previous years, LJD Week 2015 will be an event co-organized by the Legal Departments of the World Bank Group. It will also involve the collaboration and participation of international partners of the Global Forum on Law, Justice and Development (GFLJD).
