The Argentinian Roadmap’s goal is to design a multisectorial strategy to achieve SDG 16+ by establishing judicial public policies to be developed until 2030, through the next three presidential terms (2019-2023; 2023-2027; 2027-2031). Preventing asystematic initiatives or fragmentations in theses process tends to mitigate risks in the coming years.
This commitment was co-created with civil society during the first half of 2019 using a virtual platform runned by Justice 2020 program, at the Ministry of Justice and Human Rights.
