HiiL in a Nutshell

HiiL’s mission is to sustainably improve the justice journeys experienced by users of the justice system when they most need it. That means putting people first. Focusing on procedures. And empowering justice institutions to provide the leadership and stability to support that.

At HiiL, we see the ‘rule of law’ and ‘justice systems’ as means to an end: the infrastructure that is needed for peaceful and inclusive societies that flourish on the basis of sustainable economic development. This view also lies at the heart of the UN Sustainable Development Goal 16 on peace and justice. Much like roads, railways, bridges, electricity and fibre optic cables provide the infrastructure for connecting people, the rule of law and effective justice systems provide the infrastructure for fairness in economic and interpersonal relationships. The justice sector is meant to deliver procedures for managing conflict. Rules bring fairness, trust, and stability. They allocate responsibilities so life becomes less risky.
For us the core value proposition of a good justice system is the procedure. And the procedure can be bad, mediocre, and good at delivering a fair solution.

How do we work?

Our approach focuses on introducing innovation to the justice system. We collect data about the needs and satisfaction of the users of the justice system. Our Justice Needs and Satisfaction tool is able to track more than 40 elements of the justice experience. Through clever interfaces, we make the data available to policymakers so they can act on it. Data provides knowledge, creates empowerment, and builds accountability – for both achieving positive outcomes and for not doing so. Based on the data, we build ownership around specific problems, spark innovation and support coalitions for change as integral aspects of our approach. Our Innovating Procedures helps build the next generation of new and original procedures that help solve the justice-related problems experienced by their citizens. The new procedures we develop with clients combine elements of justice technology, mediation and of best practices from courts across the world. We don’t stop at devising and generating new solutions; we also help to realize, nurture and improve them. Our Justice Accelerator team runs Justice Innovation Challenges to help identify and select promising justice start-ups that contribute to systemic change. We help justice entrepreneurs validate, improve and scale up their initiatives with the partners most useful to them, and develop sustainable funding models. We connect the best projects and business models to funding opportunities.

Our values

Co-creation | Our projects are energising, based on collective learning, looking at problems from many perspectives and based on an exchange of solutions from different cultures.
Non-judgmental | We take a neutral perspective, focusing on what is perceived as more or less fair by the people involved.
Evidence-based | Research and best practices are the backbone of our work.
