Center for Democratic Governance and Rule of Law
The center was created in early 2014 to create a space in the academic community for the development and promulgation of ideas in the field of Democratic Governance and Rule of Law. ONU is already the home of the only LL.M. program in this field, and is leveraging its investment and expertise with the center. Not just a research institution, the center and its people are engaged directly in rule of law development projects around the world.
