HiiL Innovating Justice at UAE Innovation Week

We are proud to be a part of the UAE Innovation Week – one of the largest innovative initiatives in the world. From Sunday, 22 November to Saturday, 28 November 2015, over 100 activities in each emirate will take place across the UAE. Each Federal Ministry was invited to organize events and activities to showcase and present future planned innovative projects. Among the attendees is the UAE Minister of Justice and around 150 jurists, judges and lawyers.

Our Senior Justice Sector Advisor and Representative in the Arab region, Roger El Khoury, presented on “Leading Innovation Practice in Justice” entitled by the UAE Minister of Justice. Roger’s presentation included a discussion about our work across the globe, partners, network and methods: Measuring JusticeInnovating Justice Accelerator and Innovative Procedures. He also discussed the prospects of justice innovation in the UAE, including an Innovating Justice Forum.

By the end of 2015, we will conduct a Justice Needs and Satisfaction (JNS) survey in the UAE jointly with a local workshop. In early 2016, the results will be presented and used to improve access to justice across the country.

Over the past year our JNS method has provided justice-related data to governments and civil society organizations in Indonesia and the Netherlands.
