This week I attended the Summit on the Global Agenda of the World Economic Forum (WEF). It’s an annual event – my fourth – that brings together over 80 Global Agenda Councils, each built around global challenges ranging from cities, unemployment, finance, and data for development, to the automotive industry, justice and specific regions, like Africa. I was there as vice-chair of the Justice Council and member of the meta-council on New Architecture of Global Governance.

It is with great sadness that we acknowledge the passing of our dear friend, Patrick Glenn. He participated in HiiL’s research project on the changing role of highest courts and was Henry G. Schermers Fellow at HiiL between 2010 and 2011. In that last capacity, Patrick helped us tremendously with untangling the many threads we had s when developing the Law Scenarios to 2030. His thinking lives on in them. He will be dearly missed.

Editor's note: This blog was originally published in English on 26 August 2014. However at HiiL, we believe that justice innovation does not follow a single language; rather, it is as diverse as the people who work in this exciting field. Therefore, going forward, some of our blog posts may be published in a language other than English.
