Webinar: Opening Justice

This webinar has already taken place. You can watch the recording of the webinar below or view on Youtube here and access the presentation here.

Take the justice commitments survey here.

Justice is an emerging area in open government. Thanks to increased global activity around access to justice, there is growing interest by many governments and civil society organizations to better link justice with open government, and to use the OGP platform as a mechanism for making progress towards global goals such as SDG16+.

In the webinar we discussed access to justice reforms that can be advanced through the OGP platform. We share examples of country action from the new, 2019-2021 Action Plans, of OGP Co-Chair Government of Argentina and Task Force on Justice member Sierra Leone, experiences from an emerging justice coalition in OGP, as well as of other justice actions globally that seek to put people at the center of justice systems as envisioned in SDG16.

Coronavirus: The world economy at risk

OECD Economic Outlook, Interim Report March 2020

The impact of the Covid-19 outbreak on economic prospects is severe

Growth was weak but stabilising until the coronavirus Covid-19 hit. Restrictions on movement of people, goods and services, and containment measures such as factory closures have cut manufacturing and domestic demand sharply in China. The impact on the rest of the world through business travel and tourism, supply chains, commodities and lower confidence is growing.

What is the OGP Justice Policy Series?
The Justice Policy Series aims to highlight the important synergies between justice and open government and the ways in which countries can use OGP to make accountable, credible improvements to their justice systems. The Series is part of the OGP Global Report, which integrates the valuable lessons from thousands of OGP commitments and the intellectual work and activism of our rich tapestry of collaborators. The first part of the three-part Justice Policy Series focuses on access to justice and is available here. The third and upcoming part of the series will look at the justice system, not as the subject of openness, but as the protector of open government and the rule of law.


Women, Business and the Law 2020

Women, Business and the Law 2020, the sixth edition in a series, analyzes laws and regulations affecting women’s economic inclusion in 190 economies. The Women, Business and the Law Index, composed by eight indicators structured around women’s interactions with the law as they begin, progress through and end their careers, aligns different areas of the law with the economic decisions women make at various stages of their lives. The indicators are: Mobility, Workplace, Pay, Marriage, Parenthood, Entrepreneurship, Assets, and Pension. The report updates all indicators as of September 1, 2019, and builds evidence around the linkages between legal gender equality and women’s economic inclusion. By examining the economic decisions women make as they go through different stages of their working lives and the pace of reforms over the past 2 years, Women, Business and the Law makes an important contribution to research and policy discussions about the state of women’s economic opportunities and empowerment. While celebrating the progress made, the data and analysis emphasize the work still to be done to ensure economic empowerment for all.
