The Institute has been promoting the rule of law in international affairs for more than 50 years. We need support to continue to play a leading role in stimulating debate, providing authoritative practical research and setting legal standards internationally.
The Institute seeks to build sustainable income to enable it to:
Attract the highest level of scholarship
- Recruit senior researchers of the highest calibre
- Encourage talented junior researchers at the outset of their careers
Generate new activities
Provide appropriate training courses for officials around the world
Provide short courses and summer schools
Promote awareness of our work and encourage partnerships
The institute is also currently seeking funds to support two innovative new projects, The Bingham Centre for the Rule of Law and the Watts Fellowship.
As a charity, the Centre relies solely on grants and donations from a variety of sources. It has had extensive support from the legal community, trusts and companies and we are delighted to have raised nearly £2.25m in the First Phase of the Appeal which has enabled us to establish and launch the Centre.
The Bingham Development Board, chaired by Guy Morton and Guy Beringer will build on this significant achievement, to raise sufficient capital funds to support the longer-term sustainability of the Centre.
To that end, the Centre, is looking to double its initial resources to at least £5m by 2015, with the aspiration to achieve overall resources of £10m over the longer term. This will fund both the Centre's growing global network of talented research fellows and a significant portfolio of applied research projects.
