According to a new international survey, the rule of law in Norway is the second-best in the world. Denmark tops the list.
Each year, The World Justice Project measures how people around the world experience the rule of law in their home country. In this year’s report, Norway comes out very well in the survey – only beaten by the Danes, Domstol.no writes.
“The figures show that we have independent courts that make the right decisions at the right time,” director Sven Marius Urke in the Norwegian National Courts Administration (Domstoladministrasjonen) said.
He believes that Norway has something to learn from the Danes, who – he believes – appear to be particularly development-oriented and willing to change.
“They are very focused on the users’ needs and get a lot out of limited resources. The legal proceedings seem simpler and faster than ours, and they have generally seen a very practical approach to the issues. It is possible we have something to learn from their results-oriented and pragmatic approach, both in the Court Administration and in the courts,” Urke added.
Finland and Sweden are in third and fourth place, respectively, while Congo, Cambodia, and Venezuela are in the last three places.
