Legal empowerment for development

A report titled Making the Law Work for Everyone finds that 4 billion people – the majority of the world’s people – are excluded from the rule of law. It argues that “in the 21st century, legal empowerment of the four billion excluded is the key to unlocking vital energies needed to end poverty and build a more stable and peaceful world."

The report, by the Commission on Legal Empowerment of the Poor, a group co-chaired by former U.S. Secretary of State Madeleine K. Albright and Peruvian economist Hernando de Soto, calls on governments, international institutions and civil society to make legal empowerment a top agenda item in the fight against global poverty.
