The Global Justice Center was founded in 2005 to fill a critical need in the international human rights field. The success of the human rights revolution over the last 30 years has resulted in treaties and international human rights laws that need to move from paper to practice. Now is the time for enforcement and implementation; and to do this, aggressive lawyers are needed who combine international law expertise with strategic and creative lawyering skills. That is where the Global Justice Center comes in.
A member of the United Nations NGO Working Group on Women, Peace and Security; the Global Justice Center develops legal strategies to define, establish, and protect human rights and gender equity.
