World Jurist Association Congress 2017

Be part of history…

The World Jurist Association invites you to its
25° Biennial Congress Energy: Peace and Justice for All,
to be held in the beautiful Caribbean Island of Aruba, from October 30 to November 2, 2017, at the Hilton Aruba Caribbean Resort & Casino.

As an NGO with special consultative status at the UN Economic and Social Council, the main purpose of this congress is to integrate, as one of the resolutions of the Declaration of Aruba, the consecration by consensus of a new universal Human Right: The Right of Access to Sustainable Energy to Facilitate Long Term Development. This ambitious project is integrated into the WJA’s fundamental objective: To fight for world peace through the Rule of Law,
Pax Orbi Ex Jure.

Our international event will bring together important international Human Right defenders, judges, lawyers, governmental officers, academics, students and international law professionals from all over the world, which will make it an excellent opportunity for networking.

Would you like to be part of a historical moment?
Hope to see you in Aruba!

Sincerely,
Franklin Hoet
President
World Jurist Association

Sorrow in Barcelona, Spain

Dear members,

Due to the heartbreaking recent events in Las Ramblas, Barcelona, Spain, our Executive Vice President, Ramón Soler-Padró Canela, wants to thank all your demonstrations of solidarity and affection. We would like to inform you that he and his loved ones are in perfect health, although obviously frightened. Unfortunately, owing to the threat of subsequent attacks, he remains inside his residence as it is close to the area of the attack.

Such terrorist acts are, and will always be, repudiated by our organization. Likewise, we must be aware that our fight for peace and justice must gain more force in the face of injustice and the illegality of terrorism. In World Jurist Association, we must continue working for our great values and main objective, Pax Obi Ex Jure.

On behalf of the organization I preside, may the people of Barcelona receive our words of solidarity and blesses in these hours of pain and anguish.

Sincerely,

 

Franklin Hoet Linares

President

World Jurist Association
