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.

Dimitry Kochenov: Dialogical Rule of Law in the Hands of the Court of Justice: Analysis and Critique
In his new CEU DI Working Paper Dimitry Kochenov, lead researcher of our Rule of Law Workgroup argues that “the Court of Justice deploys the Rule of Law to pre-empt necessary dialogue and to disqualify substantive arguments of principle originating in other legal orders.”
