International Activities

Concrete cases and legal action against environmentally harmful and often also human rights violating projects or policies abroad very often have a connection to Germany – to companies based in Germany, German products, money or government policy. This also applies to the EU. Ongoing and planned cases in countries of the global South or elsewhere are only barely picked up by the German public. We want to raise awareness in those counties about international environmental damage cases related to Germany and support ongoing campaigns against environmental degradation. To this end, GLI will support lawyers around the world through international cooperation. Active environmental and grassroots lawyers should be supported – and GLI helps (as resources allow) when those lawyers seek access to justice through EU mechanisms and law.
