Constitutional assistance: The Global Programme for Strengthening the Rule of Law, Human Rights, Justice, and Security for Sustainable Peace and Development Phase IV (2022-2025)

November 27, 2022

Constitution-making, the rule of law and development: Constitutions are essential for conflict prevention, peacebuilding, and the promotion and protection of human rights. As the supreme law of the land, constitutions provide legal certainty, equal applicability, and accountability – the key components of the rule of law. Accordingly, constitutional assistance is a cornerstone of UNDP’s development support. UNDP works with Member States and other actors to draft or revise meaning- ful constitutions, as well as to make decisions to enact constitutional provisions, at times well after a constitution is formally adopted. UNDP enhances and promotes good governance, just and peaceful societies, and the rule of law within the framework of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
