    Post-2015: The MDGs, Legal Reform, and Development Policy

    With the deadline for the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) rapidly approaching, various groups are convening to talk about what is next. Many have indicated an imperative need for the inclusion of a rule of law component in the post-2015 framework, either as a separate goal or as a necessary underpinning to accomplish all development goals. We have invited a diverse group of rule of law development experts to address the issues of legal reform and development in the context of the MDGs. Specifically, panelists will discuss both best practices and challenges in realistically drafting, implementing, and enforcing regulations, with a focus on the MDGs and the post-2015 framework.
