  • Support research on the meaning and measurement of the rule of law, and its role in economic, sociopolitical, and human development.
  • Produce the annual  Rule of Law Index, downloadable here, documenting across 8 factors how the rule of law is experienced and perceived in 126 countries and jurisdictions based on more than 120,000 household and 3,800 expert surveys.
  • Build engagement by developing a global network, organizing strategic convenings, and fostering practical, on-the-ground programs.
