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
