LOWY LECTURE SERIES: REFORMING JUSTICE - DR LIVINGSTON ARMYTAGE Over the past fifty years, development agencies have spent billions of dollars grappling with the challenge of improving ‘the rule of law’ through improving economic growth and good governance. But the results have been dismal. The unmet challenge is to address mounting concerns about equity and distribution. In his new book, Dr Livingston Armytage calls for justice to be positioned more centrally in evolving notions of equitable development. Building on new evidence from Asia, he argues that it is time to realign these reforms to promote justice as fairness and equity. Dr Livingston Armytage is a specialist in judicial and legal reform, advising governments, courts and international development agencies on improving justice systems around the world. He has worked in numerous senior roles on substantial reform programmes for major development agencies in many countries from Afghanistan and Azerbaijan to Haiti, Palestine, Pakistan and Papua New Guinea. He is also Adjunct Professor of Law at the University of Sydney. His other books include Educating Judges (Kluwer/Brill, 1996) and Searching for Success in Judicial Reform (OUP, 2009).
