March 7-10 , 2000

Democracy and the Rule of Law in a Changing World Order, March 7-10, 2000, examined the relationship between the rule of law and the spread of democracy in many parts of the world and looked at how countries with differing legal traditions confront major common problems under a constitutionally provided rule of law. Democracy and the Rule of Law focused on seven significant areas of the law where changing needs and evolving legislation create a dynamic legal context, including transnational justice and national sovereignty; corporate power, national sovereignty, and the rule of law in a global economy; natural resources and the environment: individual versus community interests; political status and democracy in multi-ethnic and multi-racial states; the state and human rights; roles of women: norms and cultures; religion, culture, and governance. The Law Library of the Library of Congress and the New York University School of Law were the symposium's cosponsors.

The book, Democracy and the Rule of Law in a Changing World Order, based on this symposium, will be published by CQ Press, a division of Congressional Quarterly Inc., in early 2001. To reserve your copy, please call 1-800-638-1710 or E-mail: [email protected]

In addition to support from the Library of Congress and the New York University School of Law, the symposium was funded in part through the generosity of Anthony and Beatrice Welters; The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation; William S. Hein & Co.; Court Record Services, Inc.; and, the Friends of the Law Library (in association with gifts from the Fannie Mae Foundation; O'Melveny & Myers LLP; the West Group; and LEXIS-NEXIS).
