GovLab

GovLab is a 12-week program designed to identify, select, and support organizations that develop innovative and practical solutions to enhance good governance and public service delivery.

About

This program is designed to enhance citizen engagement, government accountability, and transparency by finding solutions that foster wide-scale access to public services. These innovations would primarily address pain points that militate against effective implementation and enforcement of human rights and rule of law by government officials and its representatives at the local, state, and national levels. Selected participants will then engage stakeholders to get a deeper understanding of the issues and be supported through a mentorship program to develop solutions that meet the objectives of the program.
