Who works in the field of rule of law, and how can donor organizations better match the global needs in the field? A research project at the Australian National University supported by the Folke Bernadotte Academy (FBA) seeks to establish an answer to this question. The publication of the report “Professionalizing Rule of Law: Issues and Directions” is part of the project.
The report draws upon 100 survey responses and follow-up interviews with rule of law practitioners, and a survey among participants at the FBA rule of law course. It describes how rule of law is included in almost all peace operations of today, and contains an analysis of the challenges within the field, and a discussion on how the rule of law field can be further strengthened and professionalized.
