SPEAK - Screening Process
Menu

Screening Process

  • SPEAK considers the severity and impact of the violation under international human rights law and/or international environmental law, with the aim of taking on precedent-setting cases that will bring about meaningful social change.
  • As we primarily are international lawyers, the case should contain elements of and/or violations of international law and should have the potential to realize and strengthen international human rights and/ or international environmental law.
  • SPEAK considers the number of victims affected.
  • SPEAK takes on cases where the victims form part of vulnerable people; groups and or societies, and where they cannot afford the services of private lawyers.
  • SPEAK's workload is subject to its resources and where the organization has funding to cover the cost of the case.
