The chief research officer of the institution. Alejandro Pons said, this index is based on the views and experiences of 154 thousand people and 3600 experts from 140 countries. The index is based on limitations on government power, absence of corruption, open or transparent government, fundamental rights, order and security, law enforcement, judicial system and criminal justice.
Analyzing these data, it is known that the rule of law decreased in 61 percent of the countries last year. Alejandro commented that although the situation in the world has slightly improved compared to last year, it is still at an alarming level.
