RoLMM (The Rule of Law Monitoring Mechanism)

The Rule of Law Monitoring Mechanism (RoLMM) is a new inter-disciplinary initiative of the School of Law of the Cyprus Campus of the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan Cyprus).

The formation of RoLMM has been prompted by the global spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) and the decision of the World Health Organization, on 11 March 2020, to declare the existence of a pandemic. Its formation has also been motivated by a growing concern for – and determination to protect – the rule of law, the proper administration of justice, human dignity and fundamental freedoms as well as rights including the right to life and socio-economic rights. These and so many other characteristics of a democratic society that are at risk of being adversely affected amid the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic or any other crisis of comparable magnitude.
