Rule of law
In questo lavoro si recepisce la definizione di rule of law fornita, nel 2004, dal Segretario Generale Kofi Annan, vale a dire quella di «principle of governance in which all persons, institutions and entities, public and private, including the State itself, are accountable to laws that are publicly promulgated, equally enforced and independently adjudicated, and which are consistent with international human rights norms and standards» (UN doc. S/2004/616, 23 agosto 2004, par. 6).
