World Justice Forum 2022


The World Justice Project is an organization that works to advance the rule of law worldwide. The organization cannot do this alone, which is why it convenes the World Justice Forum, an event where policymakers, advocates, experts and donors from over 100 countries come together to share insights, explore strategies and find solutions to improve justice in the world. For the second time, we had the wonderful opportunity to host this event. This year, the Forum focused on achieving three objectives: access to justice, anti-corruption & open government, and equal rights & non-discrimination.


The World Justice Forum took place at the World Forum in The Hague. It was the first time the event format was hybrid. This way, speakers and participants who did not have the opportunity to be physically present in The Hague, could still be part of the event, making the World Justice Forum even more inclusive. The event consisted of a 3-5 day program, during which attendees united under the theme of "Building More Just Communities." It started on the first day with diagnosing challenges; on day two, emerging solutions were showcased; and day three focused on shaping the action agenda ahead. The program included 9 plenary sessions, 38 interactive working sessions, 6 World Justice Challenge showcases and 12 side events. The event had more than 200 speakers who spoke online, on-site and hybrid. Multiple sessions were translated and available in 5 languages. The event was attended on-site by a record of 765 human rights ambassadors, and around 440 people participated online, coming from at least 116 different countries.

Ted Piccone, Chief Engagement Officer of the World Justice Project: “We were very fortunate to have Obsession’s team by our side for our first-ever hybrid international conference in The Hague. They guided us every step of the way as we tackled several complex problems ranging from COVID testing protocols to foreign language translation. When we ran into hurdles, they provided quick trouble-shooting advice and solutions. In the end, we exceeded our expectations in terms of attendance and revenue. We highly recommend their services.”
