HiiL (The Hague Institute for Innovation of Law) is a not-for-profit institution based in The Hague, International City of Peace and Justice. We partner with NGOs, governments and legal entrepreneurs to improve rulemaking and conflict resolution processes. Guided by the belief that justice should be accessible to everyone, we work to increase access to justice and enhance the rule of law. We support clients and other stakeholders doing this together, across borders and based on the best available knowledge.
Our missionOur 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.Our valuesCo-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.We need to make the delivery of fair solutions for people and organisations more effective.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.
