law developmentThis session will introduce members to the Trust’s litigation work on this space as well as latest developments in its considering and, through the case research of inequality in training, will see them considering practical purposes of the strategy.

What prompted me to revisit the topic is a recent experience I had when organizing an occasion on “The Rule of Law in Afghanistan” in 2013. The “Rechtskulturen” program of the Forum Transregionale Studien had invited the head of a rule-of-legislation promotion challenge of the GIZ, the leading German agency for growth cooperation, known as „Strengthening Administrative Education in Afghanistan“. The venture geared toward a extra efficient public administration by helping to determine basic and superior coaching for senior-stage public service employees in Afghanistan. We had also invited two Fellows of the Rechtskulturen program to touch upon the presentation. What was (perhaps naively) meant as an encounter between theory and practice ended up (possibly predictably) in a showcase of the abyss that separates the two worlds.

Indeed, the Sustainable Development Goals rightly establish tackling inequality as central to making sure that we “go away nobody behind” in development (See SDG 10).
