Chapter Summary

The chapter begins with general definition of the notion of the rule of law and links it to other definitions provided in this book. It shows that empirical research can better be carried out if different definition is provided of the same concept in relation to the two main contexts where an analysis of the rule of law is mostly salient, that is, the transition to democracy and quality of consolidated democracies. Such a multiple notion can be useful for a better empirical analysis of the two phenomena just mentioned above. It considers the contexts and which two related notions to choose in connection with the two political contexts for a better empirical research on the topic. The rule of law will be seen in connection with two other democratic dimensions, accountability and responsiveness. A few short concluding remarks will point out the main aspects of proposed theoretical analysis.

Keywords: accountability; political contexts; quality of democracy; responsiveness; rules of law
