This course offers a comprehensive overview of the rule of law aspects of civilian crisis management missions and to deepen the participants’ understanding of such matters and their importance in the context of war-torn societies. The course lectures will shed light on the different challenges associated with rule of law in societies affected by violent conflict, such as predictability of the law and equality before the law, reform of judicial institutions, ethics and the role of the police in rule of law engagement. Each lecture is intended to clarify a particular aspect of the field while acknowledging the practical interaction between them. In particular, a focus is given to:
- Introduction to the concept of rule of law;
- International cooperation in the field of crisis management (including CIMIC);
- The role of the judiciary and transformation of dysfunctional judicial systems;
- Core ethics principles;
- Risk assessment in an international context;
- Monitoring, mentoring and advising components;
- The role of the police in RoL enforcement.
Prospective participants should have already completed a core course in civilian crisis management. The Rule of Law course is designed to build on the already existing theoretical background acquired in core courses.
