Sri Lanka has ranked first among South Asian countries in the Rule of Law Index 2014 and ranked 48th globally out of 99 countries the index evaluated.

The World Justice Project Wednesday released its Rule of Law Index 2014 which measures how the rule of law is experienced by ordinary people around the world.

The WJP Rule of Law Index measures how the rule of law is experienced in everyday life in 99 countries around the globe, based on over 100,000 households and 2,400 expert surveys worldwide.

“Sri Lanka ranks 48th globally and outperforms its regional peers in most dimensions of the rule of law,” the report said.

In the South Asian region India ranked 66th, Bangladesh 92nd, Pakistan 96th, Nepal 57th and Afghanistan at 98th.

Globally Denmark ranked at the top of the Index followed by Norway, Sweden, Finland and Netherlands in that order in the top five of the Rule of Law Index.
