On Monday (19) Conectas published the names of four judicial think tanks and similar institutions selected through the call for projects Litigants of the Future. The projects chosen are from organizations in the Centre-West and North-East. 

Next, members of the selected institutions will participate in online training sessions on strategic litigation in human rights and will design an applied project. At the end of the project, representatives from each organization will take part in a face-to-face meeting with the Conectas team.

In order to ensure that the proposals that are submitted are deployed and to foster strategic litigation in human rights, Conectas will donate up to R$25,000 (twenty five thousand reais) to each of the institutions selected. Those organising the call for projects would like to thank the participation of all those who applied and they also stress the high standard of the proposals they received.
