Ukraine’s 2015 rule of law rank­ing

Kyiv Post Legal Quarterly - - News -

Ukraine ranks 70th out of 102 na­tions in rule of law based on eight fac­tors mea­sured in a sur­vey of 1,000 re­spon­dents in Kyiv, Kharkiv and Odesa as well as in-coun­try le­gal prac­ti­tion­ers and aca­demics, the U.s.-based World Jus­tice Pro­ject found in a study pub­lished on June 2. Re­gion­ally, Ukraine placed 9th among 13 na­tions, ahead of only Kyr­gyzs­tan, Rus­sia, Tur­key and Uzbek­istan. Num­ber 1 in­di­cates the strong­est ad­her­ence to rule of law, whereas 0 in­di­cates weak­est. Ukraine was weak­est in ab­sence of cor­rup­tion (0.34) and crim­i­nal jus­tice (0.36), while per­form­ing best in fun­da­men­tal rights (0.61) and or­der and se­cu­rity (0.6).
