The Criminal Justice Initiative (CJI) at the Open Society Foundation for South Africa is primarily a grant-making programme, with an interest in building local knowledge and sustainable innovation in the criminal justice system, as well as in relation to the prevention and reduction of crime. To this end, since 1999, the CJI has provided support to civil society organisations undertaking a range of different innovative projects primarily aimed at the prevention or reduction of crime. These have been in three broad categories: local government- focused initiatives, community-focused initiatives and school-based initiatives.
