Abstract

The rule of law is a fundamental part of any functioning democracy. As Justine Doody writes, issues of political corruption, judicial impartiality and the separation between elites and the legal system have been historic challenges for both the Czech Republic and Russia. Using recent data to compare developments in both countries, she argues that while the Czech Republic has made important progress in tackling corruption, Russia’s legal system is becoming increasingly subject to political influence.
