Migration is the human rights challenge of our time and involves both humanitarian issues and political rights.
 

Migrants, asylum seekers and refugees are vulnerable individuals exposed to fundamental abuses of human rights. They are also struggling against the structures of inequality that compel them to migrate. Our legal strategies challenge the fast-changing policies that result in various forms of violence being inflicted on this vulnerable population.

We use a variety of innovative legal methods, ranging from human rights and refugee law, to international criminal law, to challenge the many forms of violence against the perpetrators of these violations.

The mass killing of civilians by drowning, pushing survivors back to camps they fled from, preventing their disembarkation at safe ports are not only human rights violations; they are crimes for which GLAN will continue to pursue accountability.
