As part of the Law and Justice Development (LJD) Week 2017

The World Bank Law, Justice and Development Week 2017 focuses on the overarching theme Gender, Law and Development by highlighting the role of law and justice as enabler for a full and equal participation of women and men to development objectives. Our distinguished guests add a public service perspective explaining how in their own careers gender has played an important role in re-imagining how national or international laws and institutions could be transformed to enhance equality and women’s opportunities by engaging markets and societies at large.
