What we do

We create clarity about sustainable justice and highlight the possibilities and opportunities it offers to justice and society.

We do this both nationally and internationally by:


  • collecting and sharing knowledge and documentation on sustainable justice
  • promoting the exchange of views
  • giving lectures and presentations to scientists, professionals, students and other interested parties
  • publishing articles, blogs, videos and supporting material
  • providing content support for research and the writing of publications
  • other activities in support of the objective.


The Center sees social sustainability as an important basic objective for the judiciary and as the key principle for the development of justice that matters to society.

Social sustainability has top priority in the Dutch judiciary since 2016, but there is still a great deal of uncertainty about it.


We drew up the Sustainable Justice Charter as a brief summary of the principles of sustainable justice. Click on the link to read the original English Charter, the French translation, or the Dutch version.
