On the occasion of the 28th regular session of the Human Rights
Council in Geneva, IDLO and Majority World have partnered on a photo
exhibition that explores crucial issues linked to the rule of law, human
rights and development. From gender equality and indigenous rights, to
energy poverty and land tenure, the images reveal the human side of
justice and the importance of the rule of law in everyday life.
This is the reason why the photographers featured have chosen not to
shoot the spectacle of courtrooms or trials. Instead, "In Focus: Justice
and the Post-2015 Agenda” proposes justice as a lens – or prism –
through which to assess development. Through captured emotions, subtle
landscapes, intimate portraits and dark interiors, the photographers
present the complexity of human endeavor. It presents the rule of law,
not as developmental rhetoric, but as a lived experience.
The Exhibition will be at the Palais des Nations, Geneva from 2nd to the 20th March 2015.
