The Relationship between the Rule of Law and Separation of Powers: A Bangladeshi Perspective

The PDF below contains an essay I wrote for a Legal Theory class at Warwick in 2008-2009 on the aforementioned topic. I spent a good part of my Spring break reading Rousseau and social contract theories before writing this. There is much I would add now, in light of recent case law, but I still maintain the view that both terms are essentially contested and than an appreciation of whether rule of law ‘exists’ in a country cannot be divorced from local realities or the country’s stage of political maturity.
