The Rule of Law web site is aimed at both practitioners and the general public and seeks to promote awareness of the United Nation's work in this area.
The site itself is divided into a number of sections:
* 'About' includes a thorough definition of the rule of law as well as details of UN engagement in the area.
* 'Actors' provides more information on the main organisations working in this field.
* 'Cross-cutting themes' details main areas of operation including transitional justice and gender equality.
* 'Knowledge Resources' includes links to related organisations working in the field and the Document Repository.
The Document Repository contains official UN documents and publications as well as UN rule of law guidance and policy material. The Advanced Search option allows you to limit your search by year and source of publication as well as by document type.
