Mission Statement of Network

Corruption in the justice system - whether actual or perceived - poses a real threat to confidence in the rule of law. With this in mind, boosting judicial integrity is an integral part of the Doha Declaration Global Programme.

Officially established in April 2018, the Global Judicial Integrity Network is open to judiciaries and a broad range of individuals and institutions, including judges, magistrates, members of judicial councils, court personnel, judicial associations, and other stakeholders, as well as relevant international organizations.

The Network aims to promote peer learning and support activities, facilitate access to relevant tools and resources related to judicial integrity, and support the further development and effective implementation of principles of judicial conduct and the prevention of corruption within the justice system.

Harnessing the experience of its participants, the Global Judicial Integrity Network seeks to develop and strengthen global guidance and technical materials on judicial integrity and anti-corruption, as well as to provide technical assistance to support judiciaries in the development and implementation of strategies, measures and systems to strengthen integrity and accountability in the justice system. As per the adopted Terms of Reference , the core objectives of the Network include:

  • promoting networking opportunities through virtual and face-to-face opportunities for dialogue, with a view to continuously expand the Network and advance the exchange of knowledge and mutual support;
  • facilitating access to existing guidance materials, tools and similar resources on judicial integrity via an online library of relevant resources;
  • assisting in the identification of gaps in international standards and technical resources on judicial integrity and to support the development of new tools and technical resources to address such gaps and various emerging issues;
  • facilitating the identification of technical assistance needs and the provision of required technical assistance, including through facilitating peer-to-peer support and learning opportunities, such as a training programme on judicial ethics.

Recognizing that many jurisdictions have already made great progress in strengthening judicial integrity, sharing these experiences will help build strong and effective justice institutions and a culture of lawfulness on a global scale, strengthen the rule of law and enhance the delivery of fair and transparent justice to every citizen.
