This legal database project was made possible by a European Union grant to the Irish Refugee Council.

The idea was to create a central searchable archive of immigration case law summaries from 11 EU member  states which would allow for useful comparisons of cases across the countries according to a set of priority issues and provisions.

At its simplest the site provides a powerful search through hundreds of legal case law records. But for researchers who are engaged in comparative study there are numerous cross referencing features that allow you to check legal provisions and how they've been cited and made applicable across the member states.

The site also is also features multi-lingual content publishing for untranslated source content, a pdf converter tool for creating pdfs out of case law summaries, and a responsive design for accessing the site on mobile devices.

Web projects

GreenNet web projects are all about planning, designing, building and hosting websites that work for you and the issues you’re working on.

The GreenNet web team have worked for more than ten years building websites for NGOs, campaigns, social enterprises, development projects, ethically-minded freelancers and community groups. And we just get better and better at doing it which means a) all the work that is done in the name of one web project gets shared for the benefit of all subsequent projects and b) we're now the best we ever have been so there's never been a better time to ask us to build a site for you!

GreenNet web project basics

Every project is different but there are some pretty consistent threads running through all the sites we build:

  • Transparent navigation
  • Accessible content for both people and search engine robots
  • Simple data structures for organisations to update
  • Effective tools for collaboration between workers
  • Engaging spaces for supporters to interact with your work
