The rule of law


The rule of law, in its most basic form, is the principle that no person is above the law.

It is a principle under which all persons, institutions, and entities are accountable to laws that are, publicly promulgated, equally enforced, independently adjudicated and consistent with international human rights principles. By promoting a government of law, equally applicable to all without discrimination, the rule of law makes political and economic opportunities available to all members of society. It empowers people by providing a right of access to public services and making State entities accountable for the delivery of such services.

Join us for a two-hour webinar in which we will explore these themes.
