Rule of Law Index and the WJP
Internationalcomparison.org is proud to announce the launching of a new page. Based on a report from the World Justice Project, The Rule of Law page is an indication to what extent individual countries have been able to provide coherent laws and regulations. With ten different factors being assessed, The World Justice Project focuses on the relevance, just application, and accessibility to each country’s laws. The index also accounts for extra-governmental influences such as media as well as emphasizing the importance of limiting corruption. This is the first of such a report from the World Justice Project which aspires to release a new Rule of Law Index annually. The findings of the Rule of Law index have the United States ranking last in seven out of the ten factors among the countries on internationalcomparison.org. Sweden and the Netherlands have ranked the highest.
