About /Mission: The mission of the Global Justice Center is to work with women leaders on the strategic and timely legal enforcement of international equality guarantees. The Global Justice Center works to: 

  • Target the entrenched political and cultural norms that perpetuate male dominated decision-making bodies and constrain women;
  • Use human rights and international law as tools to restructure societies in ways that enable women to take their rightful place in national and transitional justice processes;
  • Identify activists, leaders, judges, and policymakers and train them in the affirmative use of women’s human rights and international law as tools for constructing new democracies, governments, and transitional bodies;
  • Transform the operational definition of democracy to one that is truly representative.

The Global Justice Center is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit, non-governmental organization supported by contributions from private individuals and foundations worldwide.
