Bingham Centre for the Rule of Law

The Bingham Centre for the Rule of Law is a UK-based institute established in December 2010 with the aim of developing understanding and assisting application of the rule of law at national and international levels. The Centre is named in honour of the British judge Lord Bingham, whose contributions to the intellectual and practical development of the rule of law are world-renowned. It aims to provide an intellectual framework to define and implement the rule of law as a universal and practical concept; highlight threats to the rule of law; produce high-quality studies and training on rule of law issues, support capacity-building and promote a wider appreciation of the rule of law among governments, decision makers and the wider public; and demonstrate how the rule of law upholds respect for human dignity and enhances economic development and political stability.
