Summary

We live in an age of measurement and quantification which has produced cross-national indicators of concepts like gender equality, war and peace, and gross national happiness, to name just a few.1 The rule of law (RoL) is no exception and recent years have seen a proliferation of indicators that are the subject of a nascent literature.2 The literature points out that indicators inherently reduce complex social phenomena to simple measures with a corresponding loss of information but an increase in tractability.
