About the Course:  

As part of its Global Judges Initiative, UNESCO has already trained over 23,000 judicial operators in 150 countries on issues related to freedom of expression, access to information and safety of journalists.   

Based on the findings of the AI Needs Assessment Survey in Africa and another survey of over 1200 judicial operators in 100 countries, UNESCO is now developing training on AI and the Rule of Law. This training will be available in 7 languages and will address two issues:  

  1. How can judiciaries use AI in their administrative work to strengthen access to justice and improve administrative processes?  
  2. How can judiciaries address issues of bias and discrimination in the use of AI, and the legal challenges it poses? 

The course is structured around six introductory modules that unpack AI’s application and impact in the administration of justice. It has a unique format as it includes sitting judges from Supreme Courts, Human Rights Courts, Legal Experts and Technology experts, all coming together to share their knowledge.  

Importantly, the experts teaching the course come from India, Senegal, Kenya, Netherlands, United States, Chile, Brazil to China. It is a real multistakeholder and global endeavor to exchange knowledge across justice systems.
