Geneva Forum

The Geneva Forum of Judges and Lawyers, convened annually by the ICJ’s Centre for the Independence of Judges and Lawyers since 2010, brings together legal practitioners from around the world.

It serves as a mechanism for dialogue and exchange between judges, lawyers and other jurists from different regions of the world, focusing on challenges faced by them in the independent exercise of their professional functions, in particular as these affects their ability to protect human rights by judicial means, and on practical solutions to overcome them.
