The World Justice Challenge 2021: Advancing the Rule of Law in a Time of Crisis is a global competition to identify, recognize, and promote good practices and high-impact projects and policies that protect and advance the rule of law in this time of unprecedented crisis. Cash awards ($20,000 USD) will go to six finalist projects that show demonstrable results and promising prospects for future progress, replication, and scaling. A committee of experienced judges will select five winners, one of which will receive WJP’s first-ever Ruth Bader Ginsburg Legacy Prize. The sixth winner will be selected by a popular vote by WJP's network for its inspiration and impact.
Ballots for the Network Popular Vote are available upon request through Thursday, April 29th at 5pm ET. Voting closes on Friday, April 30th at 8pm ET. To be considered eligible to vote as a part of WJP’s network, you must sign up for the World Justice Challenge 2021 Community Forum. Additional information about eligibility, requesting a ballot, and voting is available on the World Justice Challenge 2021 website.
