Bingham Centre for the Rule of Law
The Bingham Centre was founded in 2010 by the British Institute of International and Comparative Law, to take forward Tom Bingham's vision. It was an inspiring vision then, with the Rule of Law coming under increasing strain.
Today, it has become an urgent vision, as the institutions on which it depends to give it life are becoming more systematically undermined, requiring renewed effort to reach wider audiences about the meaning and fundamental importance of the Rule of Law.
The Centre carries out independent, rigorous and high-quality research and analysis of the most significant Rule of Law issues of the day, both in the UK and internationally.
It makes strategic, impartial contributions to policymaking, law making or decision-making in order to defend and advance the Rule of Law, making practical recommendations and proposals based on its research. It holds events such as lectures, conferences, roundtables, seminars, webinars, to stimulate, inform and shape debate about the Rule of Law as a practical concept amongst law makers, policy makers and decision-makers.
The Centre publishes the outcomes of its research and analysis in a variety of forms, such as reports, books, academic journals, blogs, media, social media. It builds Rule of Law capacity in a variety of ways, e.g. by providing training, guidance, expert technical assistance, and cultivating Rule of Law leadership. It contributes to the building and sustaining of a Rule of Law community, both in the UK and internationally.
No, this infrastructure does not provide funding.
