We build on our work on the rule of law to influence policy
ILAC expands and develops knowledge about how the rule of law works in fragile countries together with ILAC members and partners. We contribute with lessons drawn from our own work and seek to learn from the experiences of others to shape standards and guidelines for strengthening the rule of law.
By sharing lessons drawn from its assessment and programme work, we aim to strengthen international and national efforts to reform the rule of law where it is most crucial and most at risk, primarily in conflict-affected settings.
ILAC engages in policy dialogue by bringing the experience of our own secretariat and our broad membership to bear in the UN and other forums, where challenges to the rule of law are discussed and responses formulated. ILAC reports, policy briefs, and statements on rule of law and justice issues, as well as our seminars and roundtables present opportunities to enhance the international community’s work on the rule of law.
Policy dialogue efforts are frequently conducted at the global level. For instance, ILAC has worked with international partners to promote the robust implementation of justice-related goals in the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
We also work with policy dialogue on regional or national issues. Some examples of our work include supporting accountability and transparency in Guatemala, bolstering judicial independence in Palestine, expanding access to justice in Liberia, and promoting better understanding of the political economy of justice in Tunisia.
