Programs

The WJP engages its global network to identify areas where the rule of law is weak and create practical solutions that can strengthen the rule of law. The WJP acts as an incubator to develop practical, on the ground programs that are community-led and culturally legitimate. By helping to catalyze its diverse network, these WJP programs—led by non-traditional actors often outside the justice system, including artists, engineers, and healthcare workers—are advancing the rule of law from the ground up.

The WJP provides modest seed grants to support select programs, as well as connections to others in its global network to encourage collaboration and program success. Since 2008, the WJP has helped to incubate more than 100 multidisciplinary projects in five continents, and has provided over $1,000,000 in seed grants through its World Justice Challenge—a seed-grant competition to advance the rule of law.
