Access to Justice & Rule of Law

The World Justice Project maintains a Rule of Law Index derived from household and expert surveys on how the rule of law is experienced by the general public.

The World Bank's Worldwide Governance Indicators are also drawn from survey data and measure six dimensions of governance: Voice and Accountability; Political Stability and Lack of Violence; Government Effectiveness; Regulatory Quality; Rule of Law; and Control of Corruption.

In 2011, the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights and the Department of Peacekeeping Operations published a report on Rule of Law Indicators for assessing the rule of law in post-conflict situations.

Transparency International has published the Corruption Perceptions Index since 1995. The index measures the perceived level of public-sector corruption. It draws on 13 different surveys and assessments from 12 different institutions including NGOs and development banks.
