Drawing on both household surveys and expert questionnaires, World Justice Project's original data supports evidence-based policy making and provides detailed, local information for the international development and rule of law practitioner community. The Index presents new data organized into eight factors of the rule of law: constraints on government powers, absence of corruption, open government, fundamental rights, order and security, regulatory enforcement, civil justice, and criminal justice.

The WJP Mexico States Rule of Law Index 2018—built using the global WJP Rule of Law Index conceptual framework and methodology—offers the first comprehensive, citizen-based, sub-national measurement of the rule of law in Mexico, capturing the experiences and perceptions of over 25,000 people in the 32 states of the country.

What does the evidence say about the rule of law in each of Mexico's 32 states? Join us for a presentation of the Index data, methodology, and policy implications for Mexico's new government.

Speakers include: 

  • John Walsh, Partner, WilmerHale; Co-Chair, ABA Section of International Law Mexico Committee
  • Alejandro Ponce, Chief Research Officer, World Justice Project
  • Leslie Solis, Senior Program Associate, World Justice Project
  • Maureen Meyer, Director for Mexico and Migrant Rights, Washington Office on Latin America
  • Nerea Aparicio, Director, Latin America and Caribbean Divison, ABA Rule of Law Initiative
