The Rule of Law Monitoring Mechanism (RoLMM) is an 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. The formation of RoLMM hasalso 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.

RoLMM offers a peer-reviewed online platform, which is open to academics, law students, members of the legal profession, other professionals, law enforcement officers, other public servants and all other persons who care about the rule of law.
