Request a Grant Writer

Competition for USA, Canada, and International individuals, nonprofit organizations, businesses, and government agencies, to recognize and promote efforts to maintain the rule of law in society. Projects may fall into one of the following categories: equal rights and non-discrimination, access to justice, and anti-corruption and open government.

The World Justice Challenge 2022 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.

As a key component of the next World Justice Forum 2022: Building More Just Communities, the World Justice Challenge is dedicated to addressing structural inequities and governance weaknesses exacerbated by the COVID-19 crisis. As rule of law performance continues to deteriorate globally in the wake of the pandemic, communities are falling further behind the Sustainable Development Goals’ promise to “leave no one behind.” In order to fulfill this ambition and clear the pathway to more just communities, it is critical to identify and promote effective approaches to key rule of law challenges. The Challenge will contribute to this agenda by compiling a crowd-sourced evidence base for what works, raising its strategic visibility, and strengthening an emerging network of high quality, high impact rule of law organizations, projects and policies.

WJP invites entries that strengthen the foundational elements of the rule of law, support a just recovery from COVID-19, and tackle the root causes of societies’ persistent inability to deliver a dignified life for all. 

Winners will be chosen by a committee of experienced judges under the following three Challenge themes (one winner per theme), plus one special prize:

  • Access to Justice
  • Anti-Corruption and Open Government
  • Equal Rights and Non-Discrimination
  • The Data for Justice Prize for the project that demonstrates the most innovative use of data and evidence to advance one or more of the above themes
