The Opportunity Fund is an initiative designed to incubate practical programs that strengthen the rule of law. Seed-grants ranging from $10,000-$30,000 are given to individuals, organizations, or networks with the best actionable ideas.
This year, applicants from 67 countries proposed solutions to critical issues ranging from protecting the rights of migrant workers to combating corruption.
Each applicant used data from the WJP’s Rule of Law Index to identify areas where the rule of law was weak and could be improved.
An interview with the winning team from NUJS will be up soon!
