KUWAIT CITY, Oct 28: For the very first time, the Anti-Corruption Authority (Nazaha), in collaboration with the United Nations Development Program (UNDP), has successfully included the State of Kuwait in the World Justice Project’s WJP Rule of Law Index for 2023, securing the 52nd position out of 142 countries.

Kuwait scored 0.58 out of 1.00, with scores spanning from 0 to 1, where 1 signifies the highest commitment to the rule of law.

Nazaha has announced that this inclusion serves the purpose of supporting endeavors to identify and prevent corruption while also assessing aspects included in the index that had not been previously assessed in Kuwait.

This index stands as the premier global source of original and independent data on the rule of law. It encompasses 142 countries and relies on more than 149,000 household surveys and 3,400 surveys conducted among legal practitioners and experts. Its aim is to gauge and compare the perception and experience of the rule of law at the national level.

The index further furnishes up-to-date and dependable information for policymakers, civil society organizations, academics, citizens, legal professionals, and various stakeholders. Its ultimate goal is to promote policy reforms, guide program development, and support research aimed at reinforcing the rule of law.

The index comprises eight primary factors, which are divided into 44 sub-factors. These primary factors encompass “limitations on government authority,” “absence of corruption,” “transparent governance,” “fundamental rights,” “public order and security,” “regulatory enforcement,” and “civil and criminal justice.”
