Geographical remit: 


GLAN works with communities in the Global South who are systematically impacted by human rights violations and environmental harms. We aim to further empower them and their efforts to seek short terms and long terms change.  We also work with actors in the Global North to tackle the systems that perpetuate or enable these harms. 


The Global Legal Action Network (GLAN) is a unique non-profit organisation that pursues innovative legal actions across borders, challenging states and other powerful actors involved with human rights violations.  We bring together legal practitioners, investigative journalists and academics. We identify and pursue legal actions that promote accountability for human rights violations occurring overseas by working in partnership with other international and local grassroots organisations. GLAN provides the necessary platform to explore and develop legal strategies by combining legal and investigatory expertise.
