The WJP’s Unique Approach to the Rule of Law
Our Unique Approach
Two characteristics make the WJP approach to advancing the rule of law unique: the multidisciplinary nature of WJP programs and activities and the commitment to action required of WJP stakeholders.
The WJP encourages and engages non-legal professionals, from artists and doctors, to scientists and journalists, to view the world through the lens of the rule of law and to develop and implement programs that strengthen legal frameworks relating to their professions and communities.
In addition, the focus of the WJP’s international and regional outreach meetings is to develop concrete, realistic multidisciplinary projects that advance the rule of law the world over. The WJP draws on individuals who are willing not just to participate in a conference, but to translate the ideas they help cultivate into action in their communities. Bringing such a diverse group of stakeholders to the same table ensures results that are both innovative and effective. It is through this distinctive approach that the World Justice Forum will address the rule of law.
Our Unique Contributions
In addition to its distinctive nature as a multidisciplinary, action-oriented initiative, the WJP is unique in the development of the Rule of Law Index®, the most comprehensive source of data to date on countries’ adherence to the rule of law in practice; the convening of the World Justice Forum, the only such platform in the world; and the depth of our leadership outreach, from Heads of State and Supreme Court Justices to medical doctors, school teachers, business owners, and artists.
