International Day of Justice is celebrated every year on 17th July all over the world. International Criminal Justice Day is celebrated by honoring individuals working to advocate for the fundamental human rights of victims affected by criminal acts. On this date the International Criminal Court (ICC) was formally established after the adoption of the Rome Statute.
International Justice Day shows the importance of punishing criminals and bringing justice to people who have been tortured by someone else. International Justice Day is also celebrated to see the activism of countries that promise to maintain the justice system around the world.
17 July is celebrated as World Day for International Justice because this day is the anniversary of the adoption of the Rome Statute in 1998. With the help of this treaty, the International Criminal Court (ICC) was established. Since 1998 about 139 countries have signed the Court's treaty and nearly 80 States, representative of every region of the world, have ratified it.
International Justice Day is celebrated to inspire people to come together for justice. At the same time, the criminal should also know that if he commits any mistake, then who will stand against him. International Justice Day is celebrated as the founding day of the International Criminal Court. This day tells that no matter how different we are from each other, when it comes to justice, then the whole world becomes one.
The theme for World Justice Day 2022 is ‘Achieving Social Justice through Formal Employment’. Around 60 percent of the world’s employed population, which include men, women and youth earn their livelihoods in the informal economy. These people often lack social protection and employee-related benefits.
