The Center on Democracy, Development, and the Rule of Law' (CDDRL) "at Stanford University's Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies (FSI) seeks to promote innovative and practical research to assist developing countries and transitioning societies in the design and implementation of policies to foster democracy, balanced and sustainable development, and the rule of law. Scholars affiliated with CDDRL explore how best to harmonize the pursuit of each of these goals in the interest of helping to produce states and societies that are freer, richer, more law-abiding, and more transparent." [1]

"Under the leadership of first Coit Blacker and then Stephen Krasner, CDDRL already has made its mark in just a few short years in reshaping the Stanford intellectual community regarding issues of democracy, development, and the rule of law. But we have only just begun, in part because our Center is new and in part because the issues are so complex and yet so pressing for the era in which we live.
"From its founding in the fall of 2002, CDDRL has aimed to cross disciplinary divides. With the generous support of the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, FSI (then called SIIS) established CDDRL in cooperation with the Graduate School of Business and Stanford Law School guided by the belief that economists, lawyers, sociologists, and political scientists would be able to develop more comprehensive explanations of the evolution of democracy, development, and rule of law if they worked together rather than in parallel."
