The World Justice Challenge 2019: Access to Justice Solutions

January 28, 2019 - 9:45am

"More than three billion people have unmet justice needs globally. This justice gap includes people who cannot obtain justice for everyday problems and people who face systematic exclusion from the law. According to research conducted by the World Justice Project, more than 50% of people around the world have experienced a legal problem in the past two years alone, and justice systems are failing them.

Identifying and promoting good practices and successful solutions is essential to narrowing the justice gap.

Effective interventions have been developed and tested around the world. Compiling an accessible evidence base of high-quality, high-impact interventions will help accelerate the dissemination of good ideas and the uptake of promising approaches.  

The World Justice Challenge 2019: Access to Justice Solutions is a competition to identify, recognize, and promote good practices and successful solutions to improve access to justice. These can include solutions that reduce barriers to resolving everyday justice problems, respond to the unmet justice needs of vulnerable populations, or address systematic forms of exclusion and injustice. The World Justice Challenge is designed to highlight projects that have shown demonstrable results and impacts, and showcase promising prospects for future progress, replication, and scaling."
