Summary
"At its World Congress in Geneva in December 2008, the ICJ Commissioners, Honorary Members, National Sections, Affiliated Organisations and Secretariat came together to explore ways to address the serious challenges confronted by the legal community in crisis situations and to affirm our responsibility to meet those challenges. At that meeting, the Congress adopted its Declaration on Upholding the Rule of Law and the Role of Judges and Lawyers in Times of Crisis (The Geneva Declaration). This Declaration sets out a number of key principles to which all judges and legal practitioners should adhere. These principles concern such areas as the separation of powers; the function of judicial review; effective administration of justice, including through the provision of remedy and repara- tion; the right to a fair trial by an independent and impartial tribunal; the terms and conditions of tenure of judges: judicial responsibility in states of emergency; protection of judges and legal professionals from threats and persecution; and the accountability of judges and lawyers for unethical or criminal conduct."--Page ix
