Rule of Law Center of Innovation [USIP] Law and Legal Definition

The Rule of Law Center of Innovation is a part of the U.S. Institute of Peace (USIP) Centers of Innovation that conducts research, identifies best practices, and develops new tools for policymakers and practitioners working to promote the rule of law. The Center has played a significant role in shaping the field and in advancing the rule of law in fragile and post-conflict societies. The Center works on the assumption that adherence to the rule of law entails far more than the mechanical application of static legal technicalities .
