About this grant

The program goal is to produce new knowledge on legal needs globally. The World Justice Project will produce a follow-up to its Global Insights on Access to Justice report, broadening coverage to an additional 60 countries to better capture comparable data on legal needs and public access to justice. Working with a range of global partners, the grantee will also seek to develop a new assessment of the number of people with unmet justice needs (“the justice gap”) while also proposing an additional official indicator on access to justice within the context of Sustainable Development Goal 16. Additionally, through data collection and analysis, the grantee will work to support the business case for improved access to justice, underlining the benefits of timely investment in justice provision. Established initially as a project of the American Bar Association in 2006, the grantee was formally registered as an independent organization in 2009 working to advance the rule of law around the world.
