PAST EVENT: The Initiative on Apex Court Appointments – Filling the Gap in Guiding Principles
The Institute for Integrated Transitions (IFIT) is pleased to announce The Initiative on Apex Court Appointments – Filling the Gap in Guiding Principles, the second webinar within our year-long 10 Peacebuilding Innovations series.
An apex court is the highest judicial body on constitutional matters in a country, often dealing with politically-charged cases that have foundational consequences for democracy and the rule of law. In this webinar, we will examine key structural characteristics and roles played by apex courts in a democratic society and explain how IFIT’s Initiative on Apex Court Appointments is filling the current gap in global guidelines and criteria for the selection and appointment of judges to these unique courts.
Date: Thursday, September 8 from 4:30pm-5:00pm Barcelona time
