Justice Initiative Fellows Program

Justice Initiative Fellows Program: The aim of the program is to support and further develop a network of lawyers and activists working internationally on human rights-related issues.

The Justice Initiative Fellows Program is a two-year program of study and practical work experience.

Applicants from African countries are eligible.

Applicants must be nominated by a non-governmental organization concerned with human rights.

The first year is spent at Central European University, the second in the applicant’s home country, working with the nominating NGO.

The Justice Initiative Fellows will return to their nominating NGOs after the first year, where they will spend at least one year working in human rights advocacy on a non-profit basis: providing legal services, undertaking human rights litigation, providing training and education, etc.

The Justice Initiative will pay a local salary during the second year equal to an amount determined to be similar to equivalent work by the nominating NGO.

This amount will be provided to the nominating NGOs in the form of a grant.
