Our latest edition features:

 
  • New data for 2015: Updated scores and rankings for 102 countries across 8 primary rule of law indicators and 47 sub-factors.
  • Data app: In-depth country data featured on a standalone site for quickly accessing, comparing, and downloading WJP Rule of Law Index data.
  • Changes over time: Country profiles feature changes in rule of law adherence over time.
  • New global insights: Global insights into impunity, open government, policing perceptions, and more.
  • Additional countries: New to the WJP Rule of Law Index — Belize, Costa Rica, and Honduras.
