Government and the Rule of Law

The Millbrook Action Programme emphasised good government, the rule of law and independence of the judiciary, constitutional and legal structures which underpin democracy, respect for human rights, and sound institutions relevant to all these, as being among measures central to the upholding of Commonwealth fundamental values. Secretariat legal and related programmes and activities are designed to assist member countries in establishing or strengthening existing frameworks in these areas and enabling them to adapt to the challenges of more open and accountable government.
