One of the most effective ways to stimulate change is by sharing successful approaches other actors have implemented that could be adapted to other contexts with similar needs. Many commentators in the rule of law field agree that the level of information about what works and in what contexts is thin. Further, no comprehensive knowledge center or systematic efforts exist to gather and analyze data on legal and regulatory reform experience in developing countries and transitional economies.
IDLO is uniquely positioned to identify best practices in how appropriate and sustainable reform to domestic legal and regulatory systems is achieved. By undertaking this work, IDLO can improve its own program delivery and inform program design and implementation by other international actors.
