Rule of Law Webathon: Economic and Social Development
May 10 @ 6:00 am – May 11 @ 5:00 pm
Free event live on YouTube! Presented by AIJA Human Rights Committee, UIA, ABA International Law Section, Law Society of England & Wales, and Inter-American Bar Association
The world is facing unprecedented economic, social, and democratic challenges, many of them exacerbated by the pandemic. One impact of these dislocations is that they have worsened existing gender inequalities around the world. Evidence shows that, by placing women at the center of the Rule of Law and development agenda, societies can increase efficiency in the management of their institutions and resources, which in turn engenders better governance and greater economic security. This panel will discuss the relationship between addressing gender inequities and protecting the Rule of Law, exploring how barriers to women’s economic success can affect broader aspects of economic and political instability. The webathon is a 24-hour livestream on Youtube.
Note: California Lawyers Association CEO and Executive Director Oyango A. Snell will participate in the panel “Promoting a Gendered Approach to Economic Development and the Rule of Law,” which takes place May 10, 2022, 4:00 p.m. Pacific. Be sure to go here to watch it!
