About us

Global Justice Association is a group of four lawyers, Adil, Christian, Ron and Wout. All have a passion for international justice in human rights and environmental issues.

We have met in Colombia during the Caravana de Juristas, an observation mission to help human rights lawyers and lobby for the enhancement of the human rights community in Colombia. Together we saw an opportunity to work together across countries to hold multinationals responsible for their actions in Latin America.


What we do

Global Justice Association started in 2019 as an international alliance of human rights experts with proven expertise in the field of (international) human rights, human rights & business, environmental law, and corporate governance. In 2020, Global Justice Association was formally incorporated in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.

The offices in Bologna, Italy and Cartagena, Colombia are part of the Alliance, however, are not yet part of the formal structure of Global Justice Association in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Both the Global Justice Association alliance as the formal structure serve the protection of human and environmental rights, and to legally guide victims of violations on their way to justice, and to preserve the future of our home planet.
