No justice without life: 1st Asia Pacific Dialogue on human rights and respect to human dignity

printable version

Ministers of Justice, Public Officials, Mayors, religious representatives, witnesses of the struggle for justice and human rights from several Asian countries (Philippines, India, Japan, Indonesia, Sri Lanka, Mongolia, Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam and others) and EU countries delegates will gather in Manila, for the first Asian International Conference “No justice without life” organized by the Department of Justice of the Philippines and the Community of Sant’Egidio in cooperation with the Municipality of Mandaluyong, Metromanila.

The Conference is intended to offer a platform of dialogue to those countries who have initiated or are initiating a path towards a moratorium on executions, in order to open a dialogue to a renovation of justice, with priority to human rights and values, according to Asian cultural and religious heritage.

The Conference, first in Asia, lies in the mainstream of  the “No justice without life” global campaign initiated in 2005 by the Community of Sant’Egidio, an international lay association of catholic church based in Rome and worldwide spread. Joining this campaign, more than 2000 cities of 50 countries have declared being “Cities for life”, creating an international network for life and restorative justice spread all over the world. More than 30 Mayors of Philippines “Cities for Life” will attend the Conference.  Their commitment has brought many steps forward a restorative human justice in recent years, in Asia and worldwide.
