The organised violence of war and military occupations entail the potential for great abuses of power on vulnerable populations.
GLAN is especially interested in the participation of powerful actors who contribute to the commission of violations of international law for political or economic profit. These include states or corporations in the global north who act as accessories to violations of human rights and the law of war.

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.
