The Yeoh Tiong Lay Centre for Politics, Philosophy and Law is delighted to showcase the Law & Justice Forums. The forums feature some of the leading thinkers and practitioners in the world working at the interface of human rights and development.

The aim of the forums is to address the place that human rights have in rigorous and effective thinking about development policy. There will be a special focus on the socio-economic rights, such as the rights to health, food and education etc. found in the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (1966).
