Call for Justice Innovations (Deadline June 30 2016)
Are you a justice entrepreneur with an innovative idea that can truly bring access to justice to SMEs and/or families? Then submit your innovation right away!
This year, HiiL has launched two competition-challenges around two thematic issues – SME Empowerment and Family Justice. The unique approach that we adopt is to understand from the bottom-up what legal and justice issues people face today. This is why we have gathered data from thousands of people, asking about their urgent justice needs. Why are they unable to solve their problems? Is it an issue of costly legal procedures, corrupt court systems, a complete unawareness of their own rights? These are the questions we find answers to and we act on these problem-areas through innovation. Our data reports fromUganda and Ukraine show that people generally have little trust in their formal justice systems and that their daily legal needs can easily be solved through innovative justice solutions like self-help platforms and legal applications.
Innovation provides the alternative to your standard procedures that may not always be providing the right solutions. This is why HiiL is looking for top justice innovations that will empower and strengthen both families and SMEs across Africa, the Middle East and Ukraine. In order to make the best solutions more impactful, we have up to €160,000 in acceleration funding available and the winners of the challenges will continue to receive intensive expert support from our team.
