Judges are increasingly finding themselves on the frontline of defending the rule of law and coming under attack for doing so. The latest report by Dr Diego García-Sayán, the United Nations Special Rapporteur on the independence of judges and lawyers, sheds light on this reality. ILAC has also observed this trend in the contexts where it works to support the justice sector, and this policy brief will discuss examples from the West Bank and Guatemala. If this current trend continues, the rule of law could lose one of its guardians.
The Policy Brief is also available in Arabic. .موجز السياسات سوف يكون متوفرا” باللغة العربية قريبا
