 “Your right, your role: Say no to corruption”

This week, on 9 December, is International Anti-Corruption Day. This year’s theme focuses on the rights and responsibilities of everyone in tackling corruption. Please join the global community and say #NoToCorruption! With its mandate deeply rooted in the United Nations Convention against Corruption, the Global Judicial Integrity Network recognizes that judges and members of the judiciary play a crucial role in preventing and countering this crime.

The Network successfully completes its
Global Survey on Judicial Well-being 

The well-being of judges and members of the judiciary is closely linked to judicial integrity and the ability of judges to perform well and deliver fair justice. 
The Network recently conducted a global survey on the experiences of judges in this area. We are delighted that the response rate was the highest in the history of the Network’s surveys. Please stay tuned for the full survey report, with a sneak peek at the survey results below:

97% of the survey participants think that more prominence should be given to promoting judicial well-being
76% do not have sufficient time to maintain optimal physical and mental well-being
89% know of cases of judicial colleagues experiencing stress, sadness or anxiety
