AbstractAustralia has been committed to a rules-based international system since the foundation of the UN and, while recently wavering in practice has remained formally supportive of international law. This is not just a matter of values. As a major trading nation and a middle power, Australia prosperity and security would benefit from a more rules-based international order. This project aims to find practical ways of bolstering and building the rule of law in international affairs. In doing so, this international research involving the UN, a Canadian think tank and UN University's Australian based governance institute will allow Australia to take leadership role in multilateral thinking and action to bolster the international rule of law.
