Justice for All: Canadian Launch of the Report of the Task Force on Justice
On May 30th, 2019 the Centre, in partnership with the Taskforce on Justice, and the International Development Research Centre (IDRC), will be hosting the Canadian launch of the Taskforce’s latest report, Justice for All.
At the heart of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development lies a vision of a “just, equitable, tolerant, open and socially inclusive world in which the needs of the most vulnerable are met.” Justice is a thread that runs through all 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Without increased justice, the world will not be able to end poverty, reduce inequality, reach the furthest behind first, create conditions for shared and sustainable prosperity, or promote peace and inclusion.
Drawing on research by the world’s leading justice organizations and experts, this report provides a first estimate of the global justice gap. It makes the case for shifting from a model that provides justice only for the few, to one that delivers measurable improvements in justice for all
Further information on this event, including the timing, the line-up of speakers and registration information, will be provided on this page soon.
