International justice day 2020

This International Justice Day is like no other. The global justice community cannot come together to mark the occasion. The pandemic has grounded travel and brought economies to a halt. But atrocities continue to be perpetrated. 

Times such as these call for reflection and creativity. The Wayamo Foundation and the Rule of Law Program for anglophone Sub-Saharan Africa of the Konrad Adenauer Stiftung are proud to present Voices for International Justice, a video gallery featuring a prestigious cross-section of justice luminaries from around the world, reflecting on the greatest achievements, opportunities, and challenges facing international justice.
