Our Newly Affiliated Association, the Yemen Women Judges Forum, conducted a Symposium on the Role of Judicial Associations in Promoting Justice

Our new affiliated association, the Yemen Women Judges Forum (YWJF) organized a symposium on the role judicial associations play in promoting justice. Women and male judges participated in the meeting held at the Comfort Hotel in Sana’a.

Several key issues were discussed during the symposium such as: the current threats to Yemen’s judiciary; judges’ right to expression, assembly and association; the amount of Arab and international judicial associations, and their role and experiences in defending the judiciary; the reality of civil action in the Yemeni judiciary; and the importance of networking with civil society organizations to gain support for judicial associations.

The meeting finalized with a discussion and recommendations from the participants.
