A series of international events will be held throughout each year on a range of topics related to rule of law and development.
The Exchange will be hosting an event at Jones Day offices in Brussels in Spring 2017 on
'Doing Business in a Post-Brexit Europe'. Further details will follow in the new year.
Through its three core components, the Exchange will address key challenges posed by global development and its relationship to the rule of law. It will consider the place of the rule of law in emerging economies, including on issues such as access to justice, administrative justice and corruption. It will also examine the relationship between formal and informal legal systems, and the measurement of success in rule of law interventions. Read more
