What we do
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After thousands of years of outdated justice, we think it’s about time we speed things up.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 innovators in a region or country. Are you one of them? Apply to our Innovating Justice Challenge!

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
To fix something we first need to know what is broken and what may work to repair it. That's why the health sector puts numbers to diseases. Which diseases are most prevalent? What are the risk factors? And ultimately, what’s the cure? We believe the legal sector must use the same approach.
There are many justice entrepreneurs who have thought of new and better ways to get justice to people. Smart web platforms that can help people to solve disputes. Interactive dashboards with easy-to-access information about people’s needs and satisfaction from the justice system. Let's use them.
People need to work together to help citizens solve their legal problems. It's because we want to be able to find a fair solution when facing a conflict. That's why we bring together decision makers, innovators and users, ideas for change and knowledge on what works.
