The EU’s Rule of Law Initiative is one of three Initiatives first set out in the EU’s Central Asia Strategy in 2007 as a flagship engagement aimed at linking political priorities to practical assistance in the region. The Initiative is intended, on the part of the EU and Member States, ‘to support on-going modernisation of the legal sector, as part of a more comprehensive strategy to foster and consolidate stability, prosperity and respect for human rights in Central Asian countries.’ Rule of Law is now being viewed as a key policy goal amongst international development actors. Economic growth, political modernization and the ability to attract foreign investment hinges, in part, on strengthening rule of law in transitional states
