World Justice Challenge 2021 Finalists Regional Showcase

World Justice Challenge 2021 Finalists Regional Showcase:
A Four-Part Series Event

March 24, March 31, April 7, and April 14


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 accountable governance practices and high-impact projects and policies that protect and advance the rule of law in this time of unprecedented crisis.

This year, the World Justice Project received over 425 submissions from 114 countries. From these 425 submissions, 30 finalists have been selected to take part in an online regional showcase event.

Over the course of a month, WJP and its partners hosted four regional showcase events. The events featured an assessment by WJP's regional partners of the efforts underway in countries of the region to "build back better" from the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic in four areas—access to justice for all, accountable governance, fundamental rights and non-discrimination, and anti-corruption and open government.

These events also gave our 30 finalists an opportunity to present their projects and share key insights into their objectives and impact as a basis to select the six winners of the World Justice Challenge 2021. After the presentations, participants were invited to engage in a Q&A session with finalists in different breakout rooms.
