Abstract
The thesis is aimed to conduct research on rule of law as instrument for national development and to investigate the relationship between rule of law and development in rights based approach. Rule of law in relation to development will be examined to what extent it functions in practical development course of action. The study also aims at highlighting rule of law and spark light how it can be instrument to govern inter-intra development actors. Furthermore, the absence of rule of law is part of the discussion to show how its absence affects the relationship between development actors in the development process. Thus, rule of law will be discussed as: a fair, impartial and accessible justice system with a representative government. Based on this the thesis will convey rule of law as instrument that governs development actors equally in the enforcement process of development policies. In this regard rule of law as instrument for national development will be presented as a binding and governing force of the interactions of different development actors. In such manner the study will investigate the relationships between rule of law and development to show the possibilities of establishing a comprehensive understanding on their relation. This is because rule of law and development are emerging as national and international concerns. Therefore the qualitative approach of this paper underpinned by modernization development theory will investigate their emerging connection.
Furthermore, good governance that requires transparency and accountability and in turn fosters rule of law with other component parts of national development such as Democracy, Human Rights, combating Corruption, free press and institutions will be elaborated by using Rule of Law as a benchmark. Thus, rule of law as instrument for development will be conveyed as independent, efficient, accessible judicial and legal systems with a government that applies fair and equitable laws equally, consistently and coherently to all national development sectors.
