Whether it’s building courthouses, training judges and prosecutors, issuing birth certificates, being a landowner, holding a passport, or ending violence against women, the rule of law plays a big role in everyone’s life every day.
Over the next 20 days, we’ll be highlighting different aspects of rule of law on our social media accounts. To get started, here are a few sample images from our UN Women and UN Peacekeeping colleagues.
