WHAT IS THE GLOBAL ACCOUNTABILITY NETWORK?
GAN is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization located in the United States. GAN’s mission is to secure justice for victims of atrocity crimes across the globe through the rule of law. Atrocity crimes often include torture, genocide, persecution, and other war crimes and crimes against humanity which violate international criminal law (ICL). GAN is comprised of a large network of law and graduate student volunteers directed by a board of former international prosecutors and attorneys well versed in ICL. Using its proprietary “Accountability System,” GAN has catalogued and analyzed hundreds of thousands of pages of documentation of atrocity situations. By distilling this data into an actionable format, GAN emboldens prosecutors around the world to bring criminal cases against dictators, terrorists, warlords, and their henchmen.
