Democracy and Rule of Law

 

About the Carnegie Democracy and Rule of Law Program

The Carnegie Democracy and Rule of Law Program is a leading source of independent policy research, writing, and outreach on the evolution of democracy, human rights, governance, and the rule of law around the world and on international efforts to support them. Combining cutting-edge analytic insight with innovative policy initiatives that bring together thinkers and activists from a wide range of countries, the Program’s work follows two main streams: (1) democracy, human rights, and governance; and (2) the rule of law.

The Program’s first stream devotes particular attention to democracy, rights, and governance support by the United States and Europe, the intersection of politics and development, the status of ongoing Middle East transitions, the growing global pushback against democracy and rights support, and the new role of rising democracies in international democracy and rights support efforts. Recognizing that international support in these areas is at a generational crossroads, the Program aims to take the full measure of the changing international landscape, assess its implications, and help policy makers chart a new way forward.

The Program’s second stream examines conceptual, institutional, and political challenges to building the rule of law. Current projects examine cases of significant rule of law improvements to find strategies for successful change, probe the relationship between international security and pervasive, structured corruption, and assist policymakers and practitioners as they plan and implement rule of law projects informed by political economy considerations.

The Democracy and Rule of Law Program is grateful for the generous support it receives from the Robert Bosch Stiftung, the Ford Foundation, the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, and the UK Department for International Development.
