NOTE: The ULS Rule of Law Award is a quarterly award that recognizes individuals or institutions that have exhibited a commitment to upholding the rule of law in their day to day operations. The initiative, adopted last year as a proactive approach to dealing with rule of law issues, is a result of a quarterly report which is generated and widely circulated amongst stakeholders. The report also legal analyses of issues raised with specific recommendations to relevant state and non-state stakeholders to ensure complete adherence. It is in the last quarter, that UNRA was identified as the outstanding institution in observing the Rule of Law and an award to the effect given.
