When millions of diverse citizens in the Arab world mobilized successfully in 2011 against decades of authoritarian rule in Tunisia, Egypt, Yemen, Libya and Syria, one of the major hopes for stable, more democratic political orders lay in the reform of legal ideals and institutions. Two years later, the record of political transitions is decidedly mixed in these countries, and other parts of the Middle East and world more generally. With renewed military rule in Egypt, civil war in Syria and political strife elsewhere, what, if anything, does the rule of law offer to improve politics and society?

iPlatform is a global forum through which specific real-world rule of law and global governance challenges will be addressed using a transnational and collaborative model of research.
