1 billion new justice problems arise worldwide every year, more than 60% of them are not resolved, 30% of the people don’t feel empowered enough to take action.
Something needs to change.
Innovation on Justice is needed, on a huge scale!
Be a part of the movement. Innovating justice starts with you because the justice system is more than just court procedures. It’s about human relationships. Share your passion for justice with us at the Innovating Justice Forum 2019 – a global scale event that brings together innovators, leaders of the justice sector, and entrepreneurs united to make justice more accessible, inclusive, and user-friendly.
HiiL (The Hague Institute for Innovation of Law) is a social enterprise devoted to user-friendly justice. That means justice that is easy to access, easy to understand, and effective. We will ensure that by 2030, 150 million people will be able to prevent or resolve their most pressing justice problems. We do this by stimulating innovation and scaling what works best. We are friendly rebels focused on concrete improvements in the lives of people. Data and evidence is central in all that we do. We are based in The Hague, City of Peace and Justice.
This year’s Forum is connected to a meeting of the international Justice Task Force, part of a wider initiative called Pathfinders for Peaceful, Just, and Inclusive Societies. The Task Force works to encourage an acceleration in the provision of justice to people and communities outside the protection of the law, in line with SDG16.3 and related targets on justice. It is co-chaired by H.E. Germán Garavano, Minister of Justice and Human Rights, Argentina; H.E. Sigrid Kaag, Minister for Foreign Trade and Development Cooperation of the Kingdom of the Netherlands; and Ms. Hina Jilani of the Elders and the Minister of Justice and Attorney-General of Sierra Leone, Dr. Priscilla Schwartz.
