Symposium Summary

In recent years, as resources for rule of law programming have shifted elsewhere, innovative rule of law programs have become indispensable. This symposium focused on three particular aspects of innovation: developing holistic approaches, adapting to unexpected developments, and building sustainable programs. It also looked at ways to incorporate various actors to allow for more realistic approaches to rule of law, considering ways in which citizens resolve their day-to-day problems. To ensure that the symposium itself matches the programs it seeks to highlight, the symposium adopted interactive components for all parts of the day-long session, allowing participants to actively engage with symposium speakers.
