Hundreds of judicial practitioners to meet in Doha in November

Some 500 judicial practitioners are expected to gather in Doha in November this year for the second Global Judicial Integrity Network conference, an official of the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) has said.

“We also expect a very high representation of chief justices, who are very supportive of the network itself. It now has activities in 42 judiciaries in various countries,”

said Marco Teixeira, senior programme manager of UNODC’s Global Programme for the Implementation of the Doha Declaration, who was in Qatar recently.

Established in April 2018, the network aims to promote peer learning and support activities, facilitate access to relevant tools and resources related to judicial integrity.

The network also focuses on strengthening judicial integrity and preventing corruption in the justice sector, in line with Article 11 of the United Nations Convention against Corruption.

“We are receiving every month new countries that want to role out integrity tools to support their judiciary work,” Teixeira told Gulf Times.

The UN official, along with UNODC’s public information officer Kevin Town, was in Doha last week for the 9th Meeting of the Follow-up Committee on the Implementation of the Doha Declaration (global programme) of the 13th Congress on Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice (Doha 2015).
