'Rule of Law'
building strong societies
'Rule of Law' certainly has become one of the most fashionable expressions in the language of international agencies,
especially in post-conflict societies. Here, it is often used to describe only the rehabilitation of judicial and executive
institutions. Such a narrow doctrine, however, cannot incorporate traditional structures, other normative systems,
and the consciousness of society for its own law.
