Lesson Series 40: Rule of law and human rights implementation

The Issue

For any society to be governed by the rule of law requires that it recognize the supremacy of all law and that all individuals are held equal before the law. Not only does this mean that the law itself must conform to the highest principles of human rights, but also that state agencies and officials themselves must be held accountable to this law. Only then can human rights be legally protected and remedies made available for the redress of rights violations.?
