Rule of Law, Economic Growth, and Prosperity Report

June 30, 2007

Over the course of a year,  the AS/COA Rule of Law Working Group engaged in a series of discussions about how to improve and strengthen the rule of law in the Americas for the benefit of all. Private sector representatives, practicing lawyers, academics, and representatives of non-governmental organizations came together to look at four areas critical to achieving far-reaching growth: the administration of justice; the regulatory framework for business and investment; the use of alternative dispute resolution methods and the enforcement of contracts; and the protection of tangible and intellectual property rights.
