The World Justice Project’s Rule of Law Index is the world’s leading source of original and independent data on the rule of law. The index covers 128 countries and jurisdictions and uses national surveys of 130,000 households and 4,000 legal practitioners to measure how the rule of law is experienced and perceived worldwide. According to its recent report, Pakistan is ranked amongst some of the lowest-performing countries, with a rank of 130th amongst 139 countries. Pakistan managed to score 0.39 on the index, with 0 being the poorest and 1 indicating the highest.

A comparison of Pakistan’s performance on the rule of law category with regional countries like India, Nepal, Sri Lanka, and Bangladesh shows that it lags behind most of them, scoring better only than Afghanistan. The report gives a detailed account of Pakistan’s progress on different indicators against which the overall score is measured. The indicators include corruption, provision of fundamental rights, order and security, and regulatory enforcement.
