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.
WHAT ARE ACCOUNTABILITY PROJECTS?
For each situation GAN investigates, it establishes an Accountability Project in partnership with Support Chapters at an Academic Institution. GAN’s first such venture was the Syrian Accountability Project (SAP) at Syracuse University College of Law. SAP was founded in 2011 using the groundbreaking methods employed by GAN’s founder in the successful prosecution of Liberian President, Charles Taylor, in the Special Court for Sierra Leone (SCSL). Since its founding in 2015, GAN has successfully applied SAP's model to establish Accountability Projects for Ukraine, Syria, Yemen, and Venezuela. GAN is also presently working to establish Accountability Project's for the Pacific Rim and International Modern Slavery.
