The WJP Rule of Law Index 2016 (6th edition), the world`s most impartial and comprehensive data set of its kind, has been published. It presents a portrait of the rule of law in each country by providing scores and rankings organised around 44 indicators across eight primary factors: constraints on government powers, absence of corruption, open government, fundamental rights, order and security, regulatory enforcement, civil justice, and criminal justice. These factors are intended to reflect how people experience rule of law in everyday life. Effective rule of law helps reduce corruption, improve public health, enhance education, alleviate poverty, and protect people from injustices. The country scores and rankings for the WJP Rule of Law Index 2016 are derived from more than 110,000 household and expert surveys. This year’s edition covers 113 countries and jurisdictions (from 102 in 2015).
ODI partner, Matjaž Jan, who is World Justice Project Rule of Law Index contributing expert, offered again his expertise in the corporate and commercial law segment for Slovenia to help create this year`s report.
Slovenia has moved up for 1 position, as per the previous year, and is ranked no. 27 globally.
