In his new CEU DI Working Paper our Senior Research Fellow Martin Krygier argues for the inclusion of private power as integral to the ideal of the rule of law.
Rule of Law
Attacks on rule of law have long been integral to democratic decay. However, today’s authoritarians often instrumentalize law and democratic norms. Most research in this field focuses on the law or politics. The Institute, by contrast, will bring together lawyers, political scientists, sociologists and political economists to explore the how the erosion of rule of law shapes national developmental models and the extent to which it varies across economic sectors or through the influence of domestic or external actors.
