Podcast: Moving Laws from Theory to Reality

October 10, 2017 - 12:42pm

This podcast is part of a special Peace Frequency series on rule of law in practice, produced jointly by the International Network to Promote the Rule of Law (INPROL) and the U.S. Institute of Peace’s Global Campus. Each episode in this series offers a snapshot of a priority reform issue or insights on key skills for rule of law promotion in conflict-affected environments. In this podcast, INPROL Director Lelia Mooney and Senior Program Assistant Chelsea Dreher speak with Alison Evans, who walks listeners through the steps of making a new or revised law take shape in everyday life.

Alison is Legislation Practice Lead for Senscia, a Brussels-based consulting firm. She’s worked as a legislative drafter for both the Isle of Man and Australia, and has experience with policy development in the latter jurisdiction. Most recently Alison has been assisting the Commonwealth Secretariat in developing policy frameworks and legislation to combat cybercrime.

Having worked at the intersections of legal drafting and implementation, she is able to offer insights on shepherding a law from inception to realization. Listen in for her tips on navigating complex environments and setting up reform processes for success.
