Researchers, law students, policymakers, judges and legal experts in low- and middle-income countries can now get free or low-cost online access to legal information, including leading research from Routledge Law, through the GOALI programme.
What is GOALI?
GOALI (Global Online Access to Legal Information) is a new law programme from Research4Life, which was launched at the ILO headquarters in Geneva on March 6 2018. GOALI has been developed with the participation of publishers, UN organizations and academics, as part of Research4Life, a partnership to boost evidence-based research, healthcare, policymaking and global justice.
Who is eligible for access to GOALI?
This initiative enables institutions in more than 115 developing countries to get access a wide range of essential legal information for their work and studies that they would not normally be able to obtain.
Eligible institutions include governments, universities, law schools, research and not-for-profit institutions, as well as the secretariats of national workers’ and employers’ organizations.
What is available?
Academic and professional peer-reviewed journals, publications and databases related to law from the world’s leading academic publishers. Key topics covered include international law, human rights, humanitarian law and labour law – areas that can help strengthen legal frameworks and institutions in many developing countries.
