The Justice Reform Practice Group at the World Bank invites you to a discussion on Dr. Livingston Armytage’s new book, ‘Reforming Justice: a Journey to Fairness in Asia.’
DATE: Tuesday, October 23, 2012
TIME: 12:30 PM – 2:00 PM
VENUE: The World Bank, MC C2-131
Justice is fundamental to human well being and development. Over the past fifty years, development agencies have spent billions of dollars supporting legal and judicial reforms around the world. Official development assistance – foreign aid – has grappled with the challenges of improving ‘the rule of law’ through improving economic growth and good governance. But the results have usually been underwhelming and often dismal. The unmet challenge is to address mounting concerns about equity and distribution. In his new book, ‘Reforming Justice: a Journey to Fairness in Asia’, (Cambridge University Press: June, 2012), Dr. Livingston Armytage calls for justice to be positioned more centrally in evolving notions of equitable development. Building on new evidence from Asia, he argues that there is now an imperative to realign these reforms to promote justice as fairness and equity.
