Jerusalem Institute of Justice
A Heart for Justice, A Voice For People
As a legal and research institute, the Jerusalem Institute of Justice pursues justice, protecting the legitimate standing of the State of Israel among the nations and practically promoting human & civil rights and the rule of law, in the courts, the Knesset, governments, academia & media forums in Israel & across the globe.
JIJ operates both internationally and domestically:
JIJ works to uphold human rights in the region by submitting charges of the gravest crimes to international tribunals and governmental bodies. Using first-hand evidence and testimonies, we target perpetrators of heinous human rights violations against innocent civilians that have so far enjoyed impunity.
In Israel, JIJ positively impacts society by providing free legal representation and consultation for Christian religious minorities experiencing discrimination and by creating public policy reform for victims of human trafficking and prostitution.
