H.E. Germán Carlos Garavano, Minister of Justice and Human Rights in Argentina, shares his perspectives on the first meeting of the Justice Task Force.
On 21–22 February 2018, I was privileged to host the first meeting of the international Task Force on Justice along with my co-chairs the Minister of Justice of Sierra Leone, Joseph Kamara; the Minister for Foreign Trade and Development Cooperation of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, Sigrid Kaag (represented on this occasion by Jelte van Wieren); and Hina Jilani of the Elders.
We met in Buenos Aires to tackle the challenge of 4 billion people living around the world without access to justice. With us, we had some of the world’s leading justice advocates and leaders. Hina Jilani and Mary Robinson led a walk for justice as part of the celebrations for Nelson Mandela’s centenary. The Grassroots Justice Prize celebrated the work of those working for justice in communities across the world.
