What we do

Measuring Justice

Justice is about the common people. That’s why we go straight to the people in various countries to measure their justice satisfaction and learn about their legal needs.

Supporting Justice Innovations

After thousands of years of outdated justice, we think it’s about time we speed things up. That’s why we find and support the best justice in a region or country.

Transforming Justice

Real justice transformation requires diversity and shared commitment to a goal. Our experts help create transformations that are grounded in reality. Come together around a challenge.

Researching Solutions

We keep track of what works, what the barriers in solving the most prevalent legal problems are and what the ‘dead-ends’ in the justice sector are. Curious? Read on.

How we work

In the past 15 years we have developed a unique data-, research-  and innovation-driven approach for delivering our mission.

Delivering people-centred justice, rigorously.

We can strengthen justice systems by putting people and the outcomes they need first. This approach leads to sustainable solutions but also brings impressive social and economic benefits. In this policy brief, we share what is emerging about developing and implementing national people-centred justice programmes.

Promoting evidence-based practice among frontline justice workers

HiiL’s Justice Dashboard presents evidence-based guidelines on resolving the most pressing justice problems related to family, land, neighbours, and employment. These set of actionable interventions support front-line practitioners in applying what has proven to work. With these recommendations, we aim to bridge the gap between research and professional practice. Learn more about the ‘building blocks’ for preventing and resolving justice problems.
