Rule Of Law For Whom? Strengthening Rule Of Law As A Solution To Sexual Violence In The Democratic Republic Of Congo, Ryan S. Lincoln Jan 2011

Rule Of Law For Whom? Strengthening Rule Of Law As A Solution To Sexual Violence In The Democratic Republic Of Congo, Ryan S. Lincoln

Articles

This article suggests that programs designed to strengthen the rule of law in general are unlikely to be effective against the widespread problem of sexual violence in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. I argue that while weak rule of law perpetuates sexual violence, only rule of law programs designed specifically with respect to the needs, risks, and cultural norms pertaining to Congolese women can help curb this problem.

Articles

In this Article, the authors-a law professor and a biologist-offer a fresh perspective on the use of broad federal fraud statutes to combat fraud by drawing a comparison with the use of multi-site fungicides to combat plant disease. Multi-site fungicides are effective at preventing the evolution of resistant strains of fungi, but they are subject to increased regulatory scrutiny amid concerns about off-target toxicity. Similarly, broad fraud statutes serve as a stopgap to prevent the evolution of new types of fraud, but they are widely criticized as unduly vague and as interfering with the operation of specific fraud statutes.
