GFLJD Week 2012 presentation (photo)An IDPP delegation will be attending and providing accessible virtual participation for three of the Spring Meetings of the World Bank’s Global Forum on Law, Justice and Development (GFLJD) from 17–19 April 2013 at World Bank headquarters in Washington, DC. GFLJD was created to connect civil society organizations, financial institutions, governments, academia, think tanks, and legal institutions in an exchange of knowledge and best practices on legal issues facing the international development sector.

The IDPP, including two CIDP Master’s students, attended the Global Forum’s LJD Week in December of 2012, where IDPP Executive Director Dr. Derrick Cogburn’s presentation “Building and Evaluating Accessible Cyberinfrastructure for the Global Forum on Law, Justice and Development” launched the plan for an information and communication technologies platform for GFLJD – a project led by COTELCO/IDPP Director of Technology Mr. Clyde White Jr. The team working on this cyberinfrastructure project for GLJD includes CIDP Master’s students, COTELCO research fellows, and IDPP staff.  

The IDPP utilizes an innovative configuration of cyberinfrastructure tools to enable accessible virtual participation including screenreader accessible Blackboard Collaborate webconferencing software; closed captions will be provided.

The three Spring Meetings for which there will be publicly-available and accessible virtual participation facilitated by the IDPP are as follows:
