LawGhana ranks 84 on a table of 102 countries on the Rule of Law Index 2015, by the World Justice Project (WJP) an independent, multidisciplinary organization working to advance the rule of law around the world.

Denmark tops the ranking at number one and at the bottom is Venezuela.

Botswana is ranked number one in Africa and Zimbabwe is at the bottom.

The Index published this week provides original, impartial data on how the rule of law is experienced by the general public in 102 countries around the globe, WJP says.

According to WJP the Index relies on over 100,000 household and 2,400 expert surveys to measure how the rule of law is experienced in practical, everyday situations by ordinary people around the world.

“Performance is assessed using 44 indicators across eight categories, each of which is scored and ranked globally and against regional and income peers: Constraints on Government Powers, Absence of Corruption, Open Government, Fundamental Rights, Order and Security, Regulatory Enforcement, Civil Justice, and Criminal Justice,” it says.
