Our approach

Working from data

We collect, publish and give access to data on people’s justice problems and their resolutions. We help build monitoring capacity. Our goal: Enhanced access to and use by justice sector stakeholders of data and knowledge about justice needs and outcomes of justice journeys.

Data is the backbone of the Dashboard. You can explore interactive data visualisations on justice needs of people from 18 countries.

Applying best practices

We assist justice stakeholders in adopting evidence-based practice. Our goal: improved capacity of justice practitioners and providers of justice services to resolve justice problems.

On the Solving and Preventing page of the Dashboard, we showcase evidence-based recommendations to resolve land, family and employment related justice problems.

Scaling Gamechangers

We support innovations known as ‘Gamechangers’, the sustainable service models that have the greatest impact towards delivering justice. Our goal: Increased access to and use of justice services for people.

Start your innovations journey by finding out which are the most sustainable, impactful and scalable innovations. Visit our Justice Services and Gamechangers pages.

Creating enabling environment

We convene stakeholders to help reduce barriers to progress and create conditions for dialogue and collaboration. This includes the financial, regulatory and legal regimes. Our goal: Strengthened dialogue between justice stakeholders on justice needs to create an ‘enabling environment’ for justice innovation and Gamechangers (via public-private partnerships and other business opportunities).

Explore our vision for transforming the justice sector on the Enabling Environment page.

Strengthening the movement

We strengthen networks for knowledge exchange and celebrate success of people-centered justice initiatives. Through community building, we dismantle silos and inspire changemakers to support the realisation of SDG16.3 – equal access to justice for all. Our goal: Reinforced international, regional, and national movement of people-centred justice.

Our tools:

Each of the different elements of the Dashboard symbolise the people-centred justice movement and assist stakeholders for better decision-making.
