[UN BeSci Week] Understanding the Impact of Judicial Well-being on Judges’ Behaviour and Integrity

Recent studies have explored the importance of judges maintaining physical and mental well-being with a view to improving justice delivery and strengthening judicial integrity. This session explores this topic from a behavioural science perspective and present a new report by UNODC’s Global Judicial Integrity Network. The event includes a discussion with Prof Tali Sharot (University College London) and experiences of the Australian judiciary in promoting well-being of judges, as well as research from the Caribbean demonstrating how mindfulness can lead to changes in the behaviours of judicial officers impacting both judicial wellness and judicial performance.
