HeinOnline Launches a Database for the Open Society Justice Initiative
Lauren Mattiuzzo posted the following on HeinOnline’s blog:
To honor our core value of corporate citizenship, we are pleased to offer our newest database, Open Society Justice Initiative, a collection of materials free of charge to core American and international subscribers, and to the libraries of any other interested organizations or institutions. This is the fourth database added to our Social Justice Suite, a perpetually free research package that also includes Slavery in America and the World, Gun Regulation and Legislation in America, and Civil Rights and Social Justice. …
The Open Society Justice Initiative, part of the Open Society Foundations, was established in 2003 to provide expert legal support for Open Society’s broader mission and values through strategic human rights litigation and other legal work. The Justice Initiative publishes reports, handbooks, briefing papers, legal and policy submissions, and fact sheets exploring and advocating on issues of human rights and justice. Beyond its publications, the Justice Initiative represents individuals before domestic and international human rights tribunals. Its advocacy work targets national and regional policymakers and governments to advance human rights and the rule of law, and it supports local, national, and international efforts to expand access to justice. …
This database, consisting entirely of never-before available titles to HeinOnline, will be updated yearly as new publications are released by the Justice Initiative.
