The Hague Institute for Innovation of Law (HiiL) has opened applications for its Innovating Justice Challenge 2022, seeking innovations with a focus on preventing or resolving a justice problem for many people, including small and medium sized businesses.
HiiL is seeking justice innovators from across Africa and the Middle East, specifically in Ethiopia, Jordan, Kenya, Lebanon, Morocco, Nigeria, Rwanda and Tunisia, and is scouting the next generation of promising justice innovators to improve access to justice for millions of people.
This year, HiiL’s Justice Accelerator is looking for promising new justice innovations to prevent or resolve the most pressing justice needs around crime, land, employment, family, tenancy and neighbour issues.
The best innovators will then be invited to join the HiiL Justice Accelerator programme, receiving up to EUR10,000 (US$11,000) non-equity funding, and access to a full training programme, coaching and mentorship sessions, and HiiL’s global network. They will also gain international exposure, potential investment opportunities, and the chance to win up to EUR20,000 (US$22,000) on demo day.
Applications are open here until March 31.
