Togo moves up two places in the Human Freedom Index 2021

(Togo First) - Togo moved up two places in the latest Human Freedom Index 2021, a report that measures the level of individual, civil, and economic freedom in 165 jurisdictions and states around the world. The ranking was released in December 2021.

The seventh edition of this assessment, produced by American and Canadian think tanks, Cato Institute and Fraser Institute, rates countries on 82 separate indicators of freedom (including the rule of law, safety and security, freedom of movement, religion, association, assembly and civil society, expression and information, and freedom of international trade), with scores on a scale of 0 to 10.

In this edition, Togo ranked 23rd in Africa and 113th in the world, with an overall score of 6.50. In detail, the West African country scored 6.6 on "individual freedom", 6.35 on "economic freedom", and 6.5 on the "human freedom" indicator. 

In the sub-region, the country performed relatively less well than its neighbors, notably Ghana (70th in the world), Benin (76th in the world), Côte d'Ivoire (95th in the world), and Burkina Faso (100th in the world).

At the continental level, the top three are Cape Verde (36th in the world, with a score of 8.26 out of 10), Mauritius (46th in the world, with a score of 8.07), and Botswana (53rd, with a score of 7.90). The three least "free" countries in Africa, according to the authors of the ranking are Burundi, Somalia, and Sudan, with scores of 5.02, 4.93, and 4.48 respectively.
