The Socialist Republic of Vietnam is an authoritarian state. It is ruled by a single party, the Communist Party of Vietnam. National Assembly elections were neither free nor fair. There was limited competition among Communist Party-vetted candidates. There were credible reports that members of the security forces committed numerous abuses. The government occasionally took corrective action, including prosecutions against officials who violated human rights or engaged in corruption, but police officers and state officials frequently acted with impunity.

The overall score indicates that there are severe 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.:
  • Government corruption
  • Trafficking in persons
  • Significant restrictions on workers' freedom of association
  • Compulsory child labor

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.
