Data Drives Justice


By any measure, 2020 has been a tumultuous year. Trust in leaders, institutions, and truth tellers has eroded even as the threats to our society grow larger by the day. And when basic facts are up for debate, complex issues become impossible to solve.

Amidst the noise and confusion, World Justice Project's survey-based data and insights provide common ground and a credible guide to protecting and advancing the rule of law. WJP's current research and engagement priorities address our most pressing governance challenges: rising authoritarianism, unequal access to justice, corruption, environmental destruction, imperiled human rights, and a public health crisis.

On Giving Tuesday, we invite you to join our movement to strengthen the rule of law worldwide. Help us drive justice forward today.
