The JusticeMakers Program searches for criminal defenders and legal professionals with innovative strategies to promote criminal justice at national and local levels. We are particularly looking for projects that use innovative methods to help justice systems adapt and mitigate the challenges that have arisen due to the current COVID-19 pandemic.  Having local 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 up to €10,300 (Euros) plus additional benefits to implement their work as well as support from the IBJ global network.
