Description: The rule of law is a fragile and frequently threatened “belief” system that is constantly challenged, negotiated and re-negotiated. We will analyze the rule of law and its transgressions, its relationship to the concepts of rights, justice, guilt and innocence in texts and films from varying historical and political contexts.
