Event Description

Please join us for the official launch of the WJP Rule of Law Index® 2014, a report that measures how the rule of law is experienced by ordinary people around the world.

Our latest release of the Index relies on surveys gathered from over 100,000 citizens and experts worldwide to offer a comprehensive look at a country’s performance in regards to fundamental rights, justice, security, corruption, governance, and other rule of law issues.

This year’s Index includes:
  • New data: Updated scores and rankings for 99 countries across 8 primary rule of law indicators and 47 sub-factors.
  • Additional countries: Afghanistan and Myanmar appear in the Index for the first time.
  • Data visualization: New country profiles that are easier to read and understand, and a new online data visualization of the data that brings the numbers to life. 
  • Changes over time: For the first time, the Index will include reporting on significant improvements and deterioration in rule of law adherence worldwide.
  • Global and regional key findings: Global highlights and an analysis of regional strengths, rule of law challenges, best and worst performers, and trends to watch.

And with the U.S. and other nations currently developing killer robots, what is the state of governance?

As Biden Stalls, Is the "Restorationist" Narrative Losing Ground?

U.S. Global Engagement Senior Fellow Nikolas Gvosdev notes that former Vice President Joe Biden is, in foreign policy terms, most associated with a "restorationist" approach. How does this differentiate from other candidates? What approach will resonate most with voters?

Democratic Candidates & Foreign Policy after Iowa, with Nikolas Gvosdev

With the (incomplete) results of the Iowa Caucus putting the spotlight on Pete Buttigieg and Bernie Sanders, what do we know about their foreign policy platforms? How do they differentiate themselves from Joe Biden? Senior Fellow Nikolas Gvosdev shares his thoughts and touches on voters' possible perception of Sanders as a "socialist" and how climate change could become an issue in this election.
