Indicators in Development: Safety and Justice

What do indicators of justice look like?

Many national governments, civil society organizations, and international development agencies today are busily measuring the world of justice and safety, using statistics on recorded crime, surveys of victimization, estimates of the global burden of armed violence, and expert assessments of the quality of the rule of law. Learn about the role of domestically-conceived indicators of justice as well as how the countries relate to internationally-designed measures of justice and safety. More about this project
