Is there an “international rule of law movement”? Undoubtedly there exists a network of international bodies claiming to “work on” what are often called rule of law “issues,” many of whom use this term and do so self-referentially.2 These groups are not concerned with an “international rule of law,” whatever that might be, or indeed with international law more broadly. They are “international” in the sense that they comprise cross-border networks, and in that they approach the “rule of law” in a quasi-constitutional sense, abstracted from any specific (national) polity.
