Organisational base

LARG has its organisational base at the University of Essex, Colchester, Essex UK, in the Department of Language and Linguistics and the Human Rights Centre, with income supported by research grants and knowledge-transfer funding.

LARG is a group of experts who share an interest in LADO (Language Analysis for the Determination of Origin) as a research topic, from a practitioner's point of view, or both. Day-to-day management of LARG activities lies with the Convenors. Members of an Advisory Panel contribute their expertise and advise the Convenors.
