About the opportunity

This program will explore rule of law successes and challenges in Africa, focusing on problems caused by poverty, lack of opportunities, and powerlessness. In addition, we will discuss rule of law challenges caused by global communications and information networks that too often fail to guarantee freedom of expression and opinion.
