The International Association of Judicial Independence and World Peace and its members introduced innovative concepts of judicial independence clarifying significant components essential for liberty, democracy, human rights and effective world trade.

This was done by major international conferences of major important international organizations and drafting international standards and declarations. 

An important function of The International Association of Judicial Independence and World Peace is recording violations of judicial independence and rule of law  and helping judges , legal officers and public bodies and civil society organisation to deal with cases of violations .

The concepts include the independence of the individual judge, substantive and personal, the institutional or collective independence of the judiciary as a whole, the internal judicial independence of the judge vis-a-vis his colleagues and his superiors, the principle of fair reflection of society, or judicial diversity and proper considerations and procedures for judicial selection and the careful demarcation of lines between the judiciary and the other branches of government.
