Rule of law programme



Promoting civil and political rights

There is no democracy without civil and political rights; these are freedoms and other related fundamental rights that are considered as "human rights". The government should promote these rights, people should know them and CDHD should ensure their application

Main themes include:

  • forms of freedom;
  • bill of rights; international human rights legislations and institutions;
  • democracy; elections

Ensuring the application of the rule of law

The rule of law combines the promotion of human rights and democracy principles; it requires an effective justice system and coherent legislations. CDHD ensures equality before the law, accountability to the law and supremacy of the law.   

Main themes include:

  • access to justice; equality before the law;
  • justice and accountability of political leaders;
  • effectiveness and efficiency of the justice system;
  • coherence of legislations
