Rachel Kleinfeld (Alaska & St Antony's 2000) publishes book on supporting the Rule of Law abroad

"Rachel Kleinfeld, an MPhil (2002) and DPhil (2009) alumna of the Department, has written a new volume, Advancing the Rule of Law Abroad: Next Generation Reform (Carnegie Endowment, 2012).

While the rule of law is increasingly viewed as crucial for democracy, economic growth, and security, international efforts to support the rule of law abroad have generally had at best modest success. In this book, Kleinfeld provides an overview of past and present reform efforts, focusing on the second generation rule of law reformers, who believe the rule of law must be rooted in the relationship between the state and society, and cannot be built by outsiders."
