There is less than a month left to submit an application. Apply using the link below! The application process will close on December 11.
The World Justice Challenge 2021 is a global competition to identify, recognize, and promote good practices and high-impact projects and policies that protect and advance areas of the rule of law most affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. The 2021 Challenge invites submissions featuring solutions that address four aspects of the rule of law directly affected by the pandemic:
- Access to Justice for All
- Accountable Governance
- Anti-Corruption and Open Government
- Fundamental Rights and Non-Discrimination
Help us raise awareness of this funding opportunity: To ensure a wide participation among non-profits, businesses, and governmental entities worldwide, we are reaching out to organizations that have a voice in their communities and can help us spread the word about the World Justice Challenge. Given your experience and expertise, we would appreciate it if you could assist us in this mission and encourage participation from relevant rule of law actors in your network and community. Promotion on social media (e.g. Twitter, Facebook) is especially welcome.
The Challenge: To protect the rule of law from urgent threats generated by the global COVID-19 pandemic, and to recover and rebuild the rule of law over the long term.
The Goal: To support and accelerate the dissemination of high-quality rule of law projects and policies, and encourage their uptake by policymakers and rule of law stakeholders.
