JusticeMakers

The JusticeMakers Program searches for human rights defenders with innovative strategies to promote criminal justice at national and local levels. Having local human rights advocates run projects on the ground has been a truly effective method of reaching out and supporting those in need. Applicants are required to submit a detailed proposal of their idea. Those with the most innovative, sustainable, and efficient projects will receive a $5,000 Fellowship to implement their work as well as support from the IBJ global network.

Applications for the 2017 JusticeMakers Competition are closed.
