The World Bank Law, Justice and Development Week (LJD) 2013, part of the Global Forum on Law, Justice and Development (Global Forum) where ABA International is a Founding and Intellectual Partner, is November 18-22, 2013. LJD Week 2013 will explore how law and justice concepts, tools and knowledge can be used to improve development delivery and help translate the values of voice, social contract and accountability into development impact. Members of the ABA and ABA International have worked through the Global Forum on various sessions discussing the environment, natural resources, insolvency, public-private partnerships, justice and rule of law reform.
This year's LJD Week is structured around three clusters of events addressing global, regional and institutional issues:
- Days 1 and 2 (November 18-19) will explore the emerging concept of "Science of Delivery in Development," in particular how law and justice can help shape it;
- Day 3 (November 20) or "Africa Day," co-organized with the African Development Bank, will be devoted to an in-depth focus on critical legal issues in Africa's development process; and
- Day 4 (November 21) will explore current legal, policy and institutional issues of common interest to International Financial Institutions (IFIs).
- ABA Sponsored Reception: November 19, 2013 from 6:30pm – 8:00pm
