Details

Strong democratic institutions and accountable governments that uphold universal rights and the rule of law are key building blocks for secure and prosperous states. All of this strengthens the rules-based international system and is in the UK’s national interest.

Through legal-parliamentary diplomacy Magna Carta Partnerships will help build professional and institutional relationships and the capability of parliamentarians, judges, lawyers and relevant officials, as part of a long-term patient approach to democratic reform.
