Development and the Implications for Law, Justice, and Society

Programme Synopsis

Building on past programmes that focused on transitional justice and on the rule of law in China, this interdisciplinary programme examines the interaction between law and socio-economic development, democracy, and human rights in post-Communist countries, in Africa, in Arab nations, and in Latin America.
Besides tackling the theoretical debates, the project draws upon and supports rigorous empirical research, and directly engages with practitioners and policymakers from developing countries, as well as major donor and international agencies.
