Rule of Law Standard presented here has been developed over long years of trying to understand the concept “rule of law” in a way that allows for identification of the a ready set of components of the rule of law to which most would agree, for an understanding of the mechanisms of measuring and achieving compliance with the requirements of those components, and for avenue to respond successfully to non-compliance in order to rapidly re-establish the Rule of Law.
The fundamental problem with notions of the rule of law that have been in vogue for decades is that it is generally identified by the consequences of its absence rather than its presence, and attempts to re-establish the rule of law are geared to diminish those consequences of its absence, rather than establishing what is needed for its presence.
The result of this perspective on the Rule of Law is that failing an understanding of how it comes about, those in the field of trying to establish the rule of law are never, as in Humpty Dumpty, able to see the whole of it to put it back together.
The development of a Rule of Law Standard is way overdue
This Rule of Law Standards represents an approach to the rule of law that identifies it through its presence rather than its absence, and treats its absence as evidence of non-compliance with that which is required for its presence.
Adoption of the Standard is voluntary, and if you are interested in discovering how it can be utilized in your field of business or practice, contact us.
