The Roundtable marks the launch of the ROLE UK Programme’s new guide on Judicial Peer-to-Peer Learning to Strengthen the Rule of Law. Discussions will build on the recommendations of this guide to consider the means and practicalities of delivering technical support to judges and international judiciaries.

In championing peer-to-peer learning, participants will further rule of law pathways in the areas of equality and social justice; conflict and security; accountability and democracy; and growth and investment, all the while progressing SDG 16 on peace, justice and strong institutions.

A4ID and the Judiciary of England and Wales hope to foster an open and inclusive forum for the sharing of best practices on international ‘judgecraft’, offering a virtual platform to communicate experiences, personal approaches and learning methods.
