Prof. Kelley To Attend World Justice Forum in Vienna

Professor Christopher Kelley has been invited to participate in the second World Justice Forum to be held next week in Vienna, Austria. As noted on the Forum's website, "[p]rominent leaders from around the world will gather at this multidisciplinary invitation-only event to develop collaborative actions to strengthen the rule of law."

The World Justice Forum is "a global gathering at which prominent leaders from all parts of the world and a variety of disciplines come together to articulate how the rule of law affects their disciplines and regions and to develop collaborative actions to strengthen the rule of law." It is the largest international event hosted by the World Justice Project.

The World Justice Project is based on two complementary premises:
  • First, the rule of law is the foundation for communities of opportunity and equity; and
  • Second, multidisciplinary collaboration is the most effective way to advance the rule of law.Its stated mission is to lead a global, multidisciplinary effort to strengthen the rule of law for the development of communities of opportunity and equity.
