The 7 Future Justice Policy Principles

The World Future Council methodology for Future Just Lawmaking offers a new approach to policy analysis providing a coherent, participatory and comprehensive tool for best policy practice in sustainable development.

The 7 Principles are based on the 2002 International Law Association Delhi Declaration on Sustainable Development Law. They were adopted by the 192 states participating in the World Summit on Sustainable Development in 2002. The Future Just Lawmaking methodology aims to facilitate implementation of these principles.  The 7 Principles reflect the interconnected nature of the challenges we face and help avoid unintended consequences and inconsistencies in our policy-making to address these challenges.

The methodology provides a practical tool to assist policymakers to design, amend or evaluate laws, supporting the work of national, regional and local government, international organisations, public policy institutions and civil society.
