The meeting will be held in Port Louis from November 22 to 25 under the name of Strengthening international cooperation through the rule of law and the protection of human rights .

Port Louis, Missouri (Mauritius), November 24, 2018 : At the start of the 2022 Commonwealth Law Ministers Meeting (CLMM), Commonwealth Secretary-General Rt Hon Patricia Scotland said this week that no debate on the rule of law will be complete without a discussion on access to justice for citizens throughout the Commonwealth.It includes both developed economies and developing nations.According to a statement issued by The Commonwealth, the meeting will be held in Port Louis from November 22 to 25 under the name of Strengthening international cooperation through the rule of law and the protection of human rights.We must modernize our justice systems to meet the challenges of today and tomorrow.We have a big challenge ahead of us and a great responsibility, but this meeting provides a real opportunity to create a new legal solution for the Commonwealth that is suitable for the times in which we live.

Our member states are strengthened in the process of creating healthier lives for all Commonwealth citizens by our system of friendship, interdependence, and interoperability.In his opening remarks, Mauritius' Attorney General Maneesh Gobin said: We can ensure that the best way to achieve justice is to have perfected justice systems in societies where we actively address the root causes of injustice.However, it no longer makes sense that people are protected at the national level, but rather, it has become urgently necessary.In this context, Commonwealth Law Ministers are dedicated to intensifying international cooperation in the pursuit of the Commonwealth's goals and objectives.The Commonwealth Plan of Action on the Equal Access to Justice Declaration is the center of the CLMM 2022 campaign.

The Commonwealth Secretariat developed this action plan, as well as practical toolkits and best practice guides for governments, to ensure that the declaration is implemented.At this week's meeting, Law Ministers will hear presentations on the topics of people-centred justice and the future of our courts.By the end of the meeting on November 25, Ministers will make proposals that will inform civil rights efforts in their respective countries around the Commonwealth.
