JusticeMakers Applications

 “International Bridges to Justice is dedicated to protecting the basic legal rights of ordinary citizens in developing countries. Specifically, IBJ works to guarantee all citizens the right to competent legal representation, the right to be protected from cruel and unusual punishment, and the right to a fair trial.”
International Bridges to Justice, Mission Statement

In pursuit of its mission, IBJ would like to give any potential JusticeMaker the opportunity to become a part of the JusticeMakers community. We understand that our annual competition parameters limit the applicant pool, and we want to reach beyond those parameters to connect with the highest number of JusticeMakers possible. Do you have an innovative idea to prevent investigative torture? Or instead accelerate early access to counsel? Does your idea fit in with IBJ’s mission in another way? You could be eligible to apply for JusticeMakers through the rolling application process!

The rolling application has no deadline, and no geographic or thematic parameters, but the applications will be screened and judged in the same fashion as the proposals for the annual JusticeMakers Competitions are. The JusticeMakers team encourages any potential JusticeMaker to apply!

Submit your Application

While the JusticeMakers Application is available in English, French, Spanish and Russian, IBJ prefers to receive applications completed in English. If you are not comfortable writing your answers in English, IBJ encourages you to have a friend or colleague translate your application into English prior to submission. If neither of these options is possible for you, IBJ will accept applications in French, Spanish and Russian as well.
