A reading of ACBR country performances in the Politics quadrant find that higher scores are achieved in direct correlation with the degree of a government’s commitment to democratic institutions.

Libya and South Sudan fall into this category, as well as Somalia, where the establishment of a central government occurred after the 2017 indexes were assembled. Conflict also explains the low scores of troubled Central African states CAR, DRC and Republic of Congo, where central governments struggle to assert their authorities.
