Frontier Justice: The New Environment for U.S. Rule of Law Assistance

Grant Year: 2017


Robert Perito will write a handbook exploring how the United States can most effectively help other nations establish or strengthen the rule of law. He will identify a set of political, cultural, and economic tools that can be used to promote the rule of law in challenging settings, such as countries with high levels of criminality, states in which armed groups are attempting to impose Sharia law, and countries in which popular revolts are challenging authoritarian regimes.
