A new World Justice Project rule of law index has ranked Georgia at the top in the Eastern Europe and Central Asia region and 49th globally.
The country has maintained its position in the ranking, which was published on Thursday, from last year.
The report evaluates 140 countries based on constraints on government powers, absence of corruption, open government, fundamental rights, order and security, regulatory enforcement, civil justice and criminal justice.
Denmark, Norway, Finland, Sweden and the Netherlands top the global index in the report.
World Justice Project is an international civil society organisation with the stated mission of “working to advance the rule of law around the world”.
Its index is promoted as a “quantitative assessment tool” designed to offer a “detailed and comprehensive picture” of how countries adhere to the rule of law in practice.
