New Zealand

New Zealand is a parliamentary democracy. Parliamentary elections are considered free and fair. The government had effective mechanisms to identify and prosecute officials who commit human rights abuses
  • there were no reports of such abuses. The government generally implemented effectively laws criminalizing official corruption.

The overall score indicates that there are medium risks of potential human rights violations in this country. This may also include the tourism sector. Relevant risks for the tourism sector are, e.g.:
  • Threats of forced labor for migrant workers
  • Threats of racism and workplace discriminatory practices
  • Rather low score in the indices on children's rights

For better comparability, we have converted the original scores of the indices to a uniform scale of 1-100 (1 most negative, 100 most positive).

In the following table you find these recalculated values and the original score in brackets behind them.

The Overall Score is the geometric mean of all converted values for each country. It is subcategorized in five risk categories with colour gradations that can be seen in the map.
