World Justice Project: Rule of Law Index

New link added to our online resources!  The Rule of Law Index is a new quantitative assessment tool designed by The World Justice Project to offer a detailed and comprehensive picture of the extent to which countries adhere to the rule of law in practice.  The index provides detailed information and original data on nine dimensions of the rule of law:

Limited Government Powers
Absence of Corruption
Order and Security
Fundamental Rights
Open Government
Effective Regulatory Enforcement
Access to Civil Justice
Effective Criminal Justice
Informal Justice

It may be found on the law library's website under "online resources" - "Foreign/Comparative Law".
