The rule of law is the “glue” that binds all aspects of the state, the economy, and society. Each state function is defined by a set of rules that create governance arrangements. The state’s adherence to these arrangements can be seen in the alignment of formal and informal rule sets, the predictability and stability of how the rules are enforced and the degree to which successive administrations and leaders adhere to the constitution and other laws. The accountability and monitoring mechanisms within the rule of law allow abuses to be identified and for reforms to take place in an organized manner
