Our work in this area explores the rule of law at both global and national level, particularly in countries in transition.
The United Nations envisages the rule of law as the foundation of peaceful relations between states. On the '70th anniversary of the founding of the UN', we will be examining the extent to which the legal principles laid down in the UN Charter are being fulfilled.
At national level, constitutional courts provide a means of operationalizing the rule of law. To what extent are the 'New Generation of Constitutional Courts' in countries in transition able to embed rule of law principles in their jurisdictions?
