Justiça Global

Justiça Global is a non-profit organization dedicated to the promotion of human rights in Brazil through rigorous factfinding, documentation and reporting, as well as the use of international mechanisms for the protection of human rights.

Justiça Global is the petitioner of several matters before the Inter-American system and has registered more than 100 complaints with the United Nations special mechanisms for the protection of human rights. The first resolution of the Inter-American Court of Human Rights against Brazil, passed on June 2002, refers to a petition filled by Global Justice. JG supports the increased use of international mechanisms through intensive courses, on-site training and joint actions at an international level, with local partner Brazilian NGOs and with social movements. 

Global Justice seeks to assist and train local Brazilian human rights organizations to gain access to international human rights bodies; document human rights violations and present formal denunciations of abuses through international media and support networks; promote compliance with international human rights law; advise Brazilian NGOs on accessing domestic and international media; encourage international awareness and support for Brazilian rights organizations and social movements; guarantee the representation of victims in individual cases of violations before international bodies.

Global Justice also conducts direct action and training of local groups to combat human rights violations.
