62 nd Annual Meeting of the International Association of Judges
The International Association of Judges was established in Salzburg (Austria) in 1953. This is a professional non-political international organisation bringing together national associations of judges, not individual judges. It is approved by the Central Council for admission to the Association.
The main aim of the Association is to protect independence of the judiciary which is an essential requirement of the judicial function guaranteeing human rights and freedom.
Currently, the organisation unites 90 national associations or representational groups from five continents. 500 people will participate in the Annual Meeting.
