STF receives a summit of the presidents from the Supreme Courts and Constitutional Courts of the G20 members

The Federal Supreme Court (STF) was the host of J20, which was a meeting that brought together presidents and representatives from the Supreme Courts and Constitutional Courts of the member countries of the G20, held in Rio de Janeiro.

Within the framework of Brazil’s presidency of the G20, the objective of the meeting was to host a global forum in order to promote the exchange of ideas and initiatives on topics such as citizenship, social inclusion, climate litigation, sustainable development, digital transformation, and the use of technology for the efficiency of Justice.

At the request of the STF, Conectas Human Rights and the Igarapé Institute, iCS grantees, presented contributions at the meeting.

For each session, two different documents were presented: one prepared by the STF itself and another prepared independently by a renowned institution in each respective field. For the session about social inclusion, Conectas Human Rights was selected to speak due to the work of the organization in the promotion and expansion of human rights and combating inequalities. The Igarapé Institute contributed to the session about sustainable development.

The manager of Climate Policy and Institutional Framework of iCS, Caio Borges, participated at the event. The offered insights contributed to the enhancement of the preparation of the delegations and helped in the exchange of ideas and initiatives between the participating bodies. The J20 Summit has the potential to be a catalyst to encourage more effective collaboration between the judicial branches.
