Justice Lab

Strong, sound and trustworthy legal institutions are essential to the success of communities worldwide. However, many judiciary and law enforcement systems remain deeply affected by corruption, bribery, and theft. This often impacts the world’s most vulnerable populations, who are frequently denied  equal protection against injustice.
