Justice Accelerator

Empowering justice innovation

The HiiL Justice Accelerator comes across hundreds of practical justice solutions every year that can really make a difference. Justice change makers who are busy building much faster and cheaper contract negotiation or conflict resolution procedures, more effective protection mechanisms of citizens' rights or more participative, accountable and transparent decision- and rule-making processes. But in order to make enough impact, effective innovations need to be integrated in existing systems much faster and successful practices need much more exposure around the world. 

Our method

The HiiL Justice Accelerator finds and supports the world's best justice entrepreneurs in order to create access to justice for all.

  1. Particularly in Africa and the Middle East but also across the world, through local partners and supporters we locate justice entrepreneurs and in many cases add them to our "Innovation Database."

  2. Through a series of local training events as well as the yearly Justice Entrepreneurship School in The Hague, we provide training to justice entrepreneurs in the skills they need most to manage and lead their innovations.

  3. By offering seed funding, as well as access to potential future follow-on funding, we fund justice entrepreneurs with the cash they need to grow their innovations.

  4. Finally, we offer acceleration and business services to justice entrepreneurs to help get them on the right track to scaling their innovations.
