Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Promoting the rule of law through civil society and human rights advocacy
by Baldauf, Maria, M.P.P., Georgetown University, 2009, 54; 1462390
Abstract (Summary)

This paper begins by empirically analyzing the impact of civil society on the rule of law and, as theoretically expected, finds it to be positive and significant. This paper also suggests that countries with civil societies that are more active and successful in influencing, or advocating for, human rights policy also tend to have higher levels of the rule of law.
