Dutch Legal and Research Advisory institution, HiiL has made another call for applications to take part in the Justice Accelerator’s Innovating Challenge.
The challenge will pit Innovators working on justice and legal issues worldwide who will stand a chance to get up to 20,000 EUR in equity-free grant money as part of the Hague Institute for Innovation of Law (HiiL)
HiiL is a not-for-profit institution that targets to make justice work for people through new technologies, cutting edge knowledge on conflict resolution, and new forms of organisation and governance.
The institution has been increasingly active in Africa in recent years, most recently providing eight African startups with a share of EUR160,000 (USD$176,000) in grant funding through its Innovating Justice challenge.
The call for applications which opened on March first will close on June 30th.
Applications are particularly encouraged that address six main pain points of justice including but not limited to; employment justice, family justice, neighbor disputes, land disputes, crime and law enforcement, and migration/human trafficking.
Innovators in The Netherlands, Ukraine, Tunisia, and Uganda are particularly encouraged to apply as these are countries in which HiiL’s Justice Needs and Satisfaction Surveys have been carried out.
To be eligible for selection, innovations must be strictly justice related, and present viable routes to sustainability, scalability, and the ability to create social impact in their communities in providing access to justice.
