Rule of law experts tell UN what works

Rule of law experts tell UN what works 18 September 2012

While there is mounting scepticism regarding the success of rule of law promotion, important insights have been gained, and tangible successes - fragile or more robust - have been achieved in the past 5-10 years.

 Today, HiiL and the World Justice Project have issued "Innovations in the Rule of Law", in support of the High-level Meeting of the 67th Session of the General Assembly (UNGA) on the Rule of Law at the National and International Level of 24 September 2012.

With a series of concise papers by key experts and organisations in the area of rule of law, “Innovations in Rule of Law" highlights things that seem to work and make recommendations to build on. Four are highlighted:

  • Make justice more qualifiable and quantifiable
  • Integrate the national and the international perspectives
  • More bottom-up justice
  • State-building is political

The aim of this publication is to support the exchanges on 24 September 2012 and the development of future strategies.
