Ghana has a more transparent and accessible government than Italy, Russia or China

The 2014 Rule of Law Index (RLI) measures the level of adherence to national laws in 99 countries based on 9 sub-indices (scores from 0 to 1, 1=High). One sub-index measures the level of government transparency and accessibility, and Ghana (0.5) outperforms Italy (0.49) as well as Russia (0.43) and China (0.41). Another sub-index reveals that constraints on government powers (checks and balances) are more effective in Ghana, Botswana and Senegal than they are in the BRIC nations.
According to the Order and Security sub-index, society in Ghana (0.72), Zambia (0.7) and three other countries in Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) is less prone to violence than Brazil (0.66), Russia (0.64) and India (0.51). This reflects these nations’ ability to provide a safe and humane working environment with minimal risk to life and property,  particularly for foreign investors. On the overall Rule of Law Index, Botswana (0.67) leads SSA followed by  Ghana (0.57) and South Africa (0.53).
