About this grant

The Hague Institute for Innovation of Law will work through five core competencies to advance people-centered justice. This includes gathering robust data, applying evidence-based practice, scaling effective community justice services, creating enabling environments to engage broad constituencies in justice practices, and strengthening learning across networks of people-centered justice practitioners and policymakers. The grantee will do so initially in selected countries including Ethiopia, the Netherlands, Niger, Tunisia and Uganda, with an intention to add Kenya and Ukraine in the future. In 2021-22, the grantee completed four extensive justice needs surveys in Burkina Faso, Niger, Uganda and the United States. Despite the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, the grantee also assisted 16 justice innovators to make significant progress in scaling their innovative services and practices. Established in 2005, the Hague Institute for Innovation of Law seeks to find innovative solutions to justice problems around the world.
