The Legatum Institute

The Legatum Institute is a London-based think-tank with a global vision: to see all people lifted out of poverty.

Its mission is to create a global movement of people committed to creating the pathways from poverty to prosperity and the transformation of society, and it seeks to develop the policy solutions and data tools that help leaders of nations build inclusive and peaceful societies with open economies and empowered people. The Legatum Prosperity Index™, its signature publication, is the only global index that measures national prosperity based on institutional, economic, and social wellbeing. It assesses the performance of 167 countries across 12 pillars, underpinned by 65 policy-focused elements, to provide a comprehensive and holistic picture of prosperity
