This Linkage Project between the ANU Centre for International Governance and Justice and the Australian Government’s Australian Civil-Military Centre is funded by the Australian Research Council. The project advances pragmatic, evidence-based policy proposals designed to strengthen the Council’s future practice in critical thematic areas, including:
- the importance of the rule of law in securing and maintaining peace which is based on principles of justice
- commitment to the rule of law by those involved in peacekeeping-peacebuilding nexus, particularly through the civil/military dimension
- commitment within the Council to the rule of law in its decision making, working methods and institutional practice relating to sanctions
- commitment within the Council to the rule of law in its consideration of the use of force.
The project specifically aims to:
- critically evaluate the theory and practice of the UN Security Council’s decision-making over the past decade to promote the rule of law
- advance pragmatic, evidence-based policy proposals designed to increase the Council’s ability to strengthen the rule of law in its peacebuilding activities (with particular emphasis on the role of effective civil-military coordination), as well as in its use of sanctions and force
- identify the role Australia and other actors might play in promoting these proposals in the UN Security Council and more broadly.
