  3. IBA Annual Conference, Vienna, 2015. The 800th anniversary of the Magna Carta is an opportune moment to celebrate the fundamental principles of the rule of law. The Magna Carta recognised the importance of independent justices fairly determining cases following due process of law.
    Judicial corruption infects the arm of government that is responsible for protecting individual rights and liberties and for checking abuses by the state. It also undermines the faith of citizens in all aspects of government. This panel explored the causes of judicial corruption, and also examined the best practices of countries that have reduced or eliminated judicial corruption and the efforts being undertaken by various organisations to combat it, including those of the IBA Judicial Integrity Initiative.
