Access to justice and the effectiveness of Rule of Law have emerged as central components of develoment in the post conflict contexts of recent decades.  As organizations seek to integrate these approaches into the development process, many major development actors have discussed the efficacy and ways to reinforce the contributions of legal aid programs into sustainable development.  This convening, co-sponsored by American University Washington College of Law's Center for Human Rights & Humanitarian Law and Avocats Sans Frontières, will bring together key academic, policy, and operational actors from the World Bank, the ABA Rule of Law Initiative, the U.S. Department of State, among others, who will offer their insights on the challenges of promoting the rule of law in international development, and how to integrate impact indicators and empircal findings into the U.N. Sustainable Development Goals framework.
