Since its inception in the mid-1970s the Free Market Foundation has committed to the Rule of Law as an indispensable vehicle for the achievement of a free and prosperous society. The Rule of Law Project, formally established in 2016, is meant to give effect to this commitment.
The Rule of Law Project exists to give substance to section 1(c) of the Constitution of the Republic of South Africa, which provides that South Africa is founded upon the supremacy of the Constitution and the Rule of Law.
The Project’s vision is that the Rule of Law should be seen to be the bulwark against capricious and autocratic government. Our purpose is to secure, so far as is practicable, the liberty of each individual.
