This chapter presents the aggregate results of the 2015 Justice Index constructed under the conceptual framework described in Chapter 1 and the data analysis and statistical model explained in detail in Appendix 1.
3.1 Overview of the Justice Index
The 2015 Justice Index is designed in three layers, consisting of four dimensions, 16 sub-dimensions and 68 indicators (see Figure 14). Consultations with experts helped to define the four dimensions measured – accessibility, equity, implementation of law and fundamental rights. These issues are seen as critical in ensuring legal and judicial reforms in Viet Nam, aiming for a rule of law state, an equitable and democratic society and a justice system for the people.
