Finland’s rule of law is of highest quality

This year’s ranking is a step up for Finland, as last year the country was placed fourth. The two countries that finished ahead of Finland are Denmark and Norway. The 2016 edition of the index, published by The World Justice Project, increased its reach to 113 countries and jurisdictions, in comparison to 102 the year before. The data is collected from over 100 000 household and expert surveys and measures using 44 indicators across eight primary rule of law factors: constraints on government powers, absence of corruption, open government, fundamental rights, order and security, regulatory enforcement, civil justice and criminal justice.
