About the event

The Global Rule of Law Exchange will be streaming a live webcast on Thursday 5 November 2015 (from 14:00 BST).

This event, which is part of the 'research to practice' project, aims to facilitate the exchange of ideas and information between academics, practitioners, civil society, policy makers, and the legal profession on topics related to development and the rule of law. It follows the submission of call for practice notes which will be published in an edited volume, tentatively towards early 2016.

During this event, panellists (which includes academics and policy makers) will discuss challenges and share experience with converting research into policy. They will also aim to share tips to help researchers better articulate their findings to a policy audience.

Participants can send questions in advance to Mat Tromme at, though there will also be a possibility to asks questions to the panel live via a chat box.

The event will be recorded, and a play-back version available on the Global Rule of Law Exchange website.
