Abstract

Global Online Access to Legal Information (GOALI) – A New Legal Training Resource for Developing Countries

This paper presents a new programme called Global Online Access to Legal Information (GOALI) to be launched in February 2018 as the newest member of the Research4Life programme. The objective of GOALI is to provide free or very low cost online access to legal information and academic research to governments, universities and non-profit institutions in developing countries to promote access to justice and the rule of law. We look at the challenges in accessing and using legal information in the developing world and present GOALI as a tool that in conjunction with the Research4Life programme infrastructure, can address some of these challenges. Finally, we will point out how GOALI will support the promotion of Sustainable Development Goal 16 on promoting peace and inclusive societies.
