A Public Health Approach to Judicial Diversity

To reduce the burden of violence and unintentional injury WHO/Europe advocates the use of a public health approach. This requires evidence based action and multisectoral cooperation. It supports Member States by providing data on the burden and risks of injuries and violence; supporting evidence based policy making; improving capacity for prevention and services; and
facilitating the exchange of knowledge and good practice. Can this approach also be used to tackle the violence of racism and promote judicial diversity? This paper will consider the potential for use of a multi-level approach to create greater judicial diversity in Europe.
