Rule of Law for Citizens

In their new book, “A Citizen’s Guide to the Rule of Law – Why We Need to Fight for the Most Precious Human Inventions of All Time”, Kalypso Nicolaidis and Dr. Adis Merdzanovic investigate the importance of the #ruleoflaw: what it is, why it matters and why citizens have to defend it.

It was a pleasure to join the discussion with Alexander StubbSarah Nouwen and Othon Anastasakis about this citizen-centred approach at the book launch event, organised jointly by the EUI School of Transnational Governance and SEESOX St Antonys College Oxford on June 17th.
