Law for All Initiative
An overwhelming majority of Indians do not have access to justice. Ashoka’s experience in driving change in different parts of the world has taught us that it is vital to develop ecosystems where leading social entrepreneurs and changemakers can work together to unlock the changemaking potential of every citizen. It is only through the potential of every citizen as a changemaker that we can mount a truly scalable and systemic response to the diversity and size of problems pertaining to access to justice.
Ashoka‘s Law for All Initiative is aimed at developing precisely such an ecosystem by establishing its three building blocks: a collective of leading social entrepreneurs, critical sector catalysts and influencers, and a growing movement of young justice changemakers. This ecosystem, equipped with powerful ideas such as collaborative resolution of disputes, open access to law and justice data, well-being in systems of criminal justice, and community justice solutions, can achieve widespread and irreversible impact.
