"The Center on Democracy, Development, and the Rule of Law (CDDRL) engages in research, training, and teaching, and organizes intellectual and policy dialogues aimed at increasing public understanding of economic and political development. Founded in 2002, CDDRL has collaborated with scholars, policymakers, and practitioners around the world to advance collective knowledge about the linkages between democracy, sustainable economic development, human rights, and the rule of law. The center has hosted roughly three dozen conferences and workshops addressing issues of democracy, democracy promotion, economic development, natural resource management, governance, and the rule of law. Through its collaborative projects, CDDRL has published or helped to support the research for more than 15 books and many dozens of articles and book chapters, while also welcoming more than 50 visiting scholars from around the world. During the first five years of our annual Draper----Hills Summer Fellows Program, the Center has hosted 139 rising leaders from 62 countries in transition. And we have recently initiated a senior honor's program for Stanford undergraduates and developed a foundational course in democracy, development and the rule of law taught to more than 150 students every autumn."
