From FOI Stacie Strong: As some of you may know, Arbitrator Intelligence (see here) has been shortlisted to the top 60 of over 250 submissions to compete in the global “Innovating Justice Challenge” competition organized by the Hague Institute for the Internationalisation of Law (HiiL). The contest awards various initiatives that promote innovation in the rule of law. As a former fellow at HiiL, I can attest to the worthiness of the organization and the suitability of Arbitrator Intelligence for this award.

Arbitrator Intelligence has until September 17 to get as many votes as possible, and we’re asking for your help in doing so. If Arbitrator Intelligence is one of the top three highest-voted projects, it will, together with three wildcards, be evaluated by a HiiL jury. The jury will select three finalists who will go to the Peace Palace in The Hague to present their project to a distinguished gathering of potential funders and supporters, and have a chance to win financial sponsorship.

As a non-profit entity, the opportunity to gain international support would be exceptionally valuable to Arbitrator Intelligence. All it takes from you is a simple click on the link below.

Please note that you do not need to be a member of Facebook to vote—just click on the “Sign up here” link at the bottom of the voting popout and it will take you to an alternative means of signing up. Please also note that voting does not constitute a public endorsement of Arbitrator Intelligence. Voters’ names only appear for a brief time on the voting site and will not be separately used or published for any other purpose.
