#Africa SA initiative wins Innovating Justice Challenge


South Africa’s Citizen Justice Network, which trains community paralegals to be radio journalists and then pairs them with community radio stations so that vital social justice content can be produced and spread, has been named winner of the Innovating Justice Challenge 2017.

The Hague played host to the 2017 Innovating Justice Forum where world renowned justice leaders and 15 of the best justice entrepreneurs gathered for the all-day event.

Citizen Justice Network was named the overall winner by a jury comprised of individuals from the private, non-profit and legal sector, while another South African company, Lady Liberty, was second. US company JustFix NYC came in third.

The forum was the culmination of the year-long Innovating Justice Challenge run by HiiL’s Justice Accelerator team, which saw 15 justice innovators pitching at intervals throughout the forum, with Ukraine, the United States (US), Uganda and South Africa among the worldwide representatives.
