New Faculty Publication: Veronica Taylor on the Rule of Law Bazaar

Veronica L. Taylor, The Rule of Law Bazaar, in Rule of Law Promotion: global perspectives, local applications 325 (Per Bergling, Jenny Ederlof & Veronica L. Taylor, eds., 2009). Located at K3171 .R85 2009, Classified stacks.

Professor Taylor assesses institutional design issues in rule of law scholarship and calls for more inquiry and research to address the structural problems of donor-assisted rule of law initiatives. Professor Taylor concludes, "We know that the world is littered with failed legal reform projects. One consequence is that failed rule of law projects--or those that fail to deliver on their advertised promises-- have costs." (p. 357)
