The Rule of Law in Development and Transitional Societies

Transitional societies can present a challenge in respect of finding ways in which the law can be used to overcome legacies of conflict and authoritarian rule. The Centre's work in these areas includes a focus on finding a place for the rule of law in the UN post-2015 development agenda, assessing its relevance to foreign direct investment, considering how new constitutions can foster the rule of law and how transitional processes can be used to address a past in which the rule of law and human rights were not respected.
