The rule of law across the world

The law should theoretically apply equally to all, rulers and ruled alike. World Justice Project’s annual Rule of Law Index ranks 113 nations’ adherence to eight dimensions of the rule of law, measuring factors such as levels of corruption  and regulatory enforcement of government powers and fundamental rights. All countries are given an overall score on a scale of zero to one.  The research, published last October, surveyed the general public, and national practitioners and academics, with expertise in civil and commercial law, criminal justice, labour law and public health.
