The central theme of this year’s Forum is justice. Considering that political and economic injustice lie at the heart of many intractable problems we face today, a comprehensive analysis and discussion of justice in the widest sense of the term will enable sharper assessment of the current challenges facing our world and the articulation of concrete, workable solutions.
The Forum addressed the theme “Justice” under six different themes and four sessions was held under each theme. These themes include: “Justice and Global Order”, “Justice and Politics”, “Justice and History”, “Economic Justice”, “Justice, Art and Media”, “Justice and Religion”.
