Objective evaluation of the effectiveness of law and governance is a first step towards driving improvement.  IUCN has developed a framework for assessing legal effectiveness to improve understanding, instigate dialogue and support change.  Researchers from around the world have used this method to evaluate implementation of different legal principles in different countries and contexts. 

We invite you to contribute to our growing database of case studies by undertaking your own evaluation, using this method, and posting the resulting case study on this site.
