2015 GLOBAL DEMOCRACY INDEX - BOTSWANA RANKED 28 OUT OF THE 167 COUNTRIES

The Economist Intelligence Unit has released its 2015 Global Democracy Index (GDI) of 167 countries. In its latest GDI, Botswana was ranked 28th in the world as well as second in Africa (after Mauritius) with an overall score of 7.87.

 This year’s score places Botswana just below France (7.92) and above Estonia (7.85) along with a dozen other European Union member state.

Our 2015 GDI ranking is, moreover, consistent with the upward trend enjoyed by Botswana since 2008 when the country was ranked 39 in the world with a score of 7.47.

 

The Democracy Index further breaks down the overall state of each country’s governance according various categories, with Botswana continuing to obtain near perfect scores for Electoral Process and Pluralism (9.17) and Civil Liberties (9.41).
