Environmental and Economic Justice

GLAN considers the most fundamental violations of human rights to be structural and longstanding. The ability for individuals to lead healthy and secure lives is undermined by systems of economic exploitation and environmental harm. Climate change, and the effects it will have on the poorest populations, is perhaps the major challenge the international (legal) system is facing. We are determined to mobilise our expertise in innovative ways to challenge those exacerbating, and profiting from, environmental and economic injustice.
