International Activities

Specific cases and legal action against environmentally harmful projects or policies abroad, which frequently also violate human rights, are often related to Germanbased companies, German money and/or national government policies. This applies to the European Union as well. Ongoing and planned cases in countries of the global South and elsewhere are scarcely recognized by the German public. GLI aims to raise awareness for international environmental cases related to Germany and to support ongoing campaigns against environmental degradation. To this end, GLI will support lawyers around the world through international cooperation. Active environmental lawyers will be supported and GLI will assist (resources permitting) when these lawyers seek access to justice through EU mechanisms and law.
