At AIU, we believe that all human being are born free and equal in dignity and rights.
In order for rights, justice and development policies to succeed, states need to enjoy conditions of durable peace.
Justice is a conscience, not a personal conscience but the conscience of the whole of humanity.
Effective governance based on the rule of law is an important pre-requisite for sustainable development.
