Vision 2030 for Rule of Law International Symposium
Despite the presence of the rule of law in different legal systems; practice, or even understanding, of the rule of law may vary among jurisdictions.
With a view to contributing to the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, in particular, Goal 16.3 which advocates ‘promot[ing] the rule of law at the national and international levels and ensur[ing] equal access to justice for all’, the Department of Justice of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of the People’s Republic of China, Asian Peace and Reconciliation Council, and Asian Academy of International Law join hands to organise the ‘Vision 2030 for Rule of Law International Symposium’, bringing together prestigious speakers to examine both the shared and distinct understanding and practice of the rule of law under various jurisdictions.
In addition to plenary sessions featuring government dignitaries and world-renowned legal experts, eminent speakers of varied spectra will discuss three seminal issues: (1) the rule of law under international law, (2) fundamental elements of the rule of law, and (3) practice of the rule of law in different cultural contexts. The Symposium will also present the Vision 2030 Task Force Report, the fruit of two years’ intensive work since the launch of ‘Vision 2030 for Rule of Law’ in 2020.
