New Rule, LLC

New-Rule is a small, woman owned business dedicated to big results in rule of law (ROL), human rights, and democracy and governance. Drawing on decades of experience in the field, the New-Rule Team is committed to converting lessons-identified to lessons-applied. Our experts work on research, analysis, design, capture, implementation, and monitoring and evaluation because these disciplines are their chosen professions. Whether it is bringing technical expertise to an implementer, organization, or individual, the New-Rule ethos is that advancing the field and the needs of its clients can, and should, go hand in hand. Launched in 2013, New-Rule has advised a variety of clients, including governments, international development companies, and scholarly institutes. Senior technical expertise with tested field experience is mission critical to peace-building, development, and related sectors, and New-Rule is committed to converting all relevant guidance and knowledge into practical approaches, strategies, and interventions. Our experts understand the ROL and human rights are inextricably intertwined with stable, transparent, accountable governance.
