Building a Global Community of Advocates for the Rule of Law

The World Justice Challenge is a global competition to identify, recognize, promote, and support practices and projects that effectively advance the rule of law.

The competition has completed three cycles in 2019, 2021, and 2022, in each round convening 30 finalists and 10 honorable mentions both online and in-person at the World Justice Forum.

The World Justice Challenge awards a small unrestricted cash prize to the selected winners, and focuses on the role of networking, collaboration, and profile building to support the finalist organizations. Once an organization is selected as a finalist or honorable mention, they are invited to join the World Justice Challenge Alumni Network, a community of practice that supports its members through information and learning exchange.
