Which Countries Have The Best And Worst Reputations For 2016?
According to a study which ranks how countries are perceived and respected worldwide, Sweden is the “most admired” country with the “best reputation” in the world, for 2016. In 2nd place this year is Canada, followed by Switzerland, Australia, and Norway.
Interestingly, Europe leads the world in reputation, boasting 16 of the 20 highest-ranked countries. The rest of Scandinavia also made it to the top 10, with Norway in 5th place, Finland in 6th, and Denmark in 6th. Oceania also did well overall, with Australia and New Zealand placing 4th and 7th, respectively.
On the low end of the spectrum, Iraq, Iran, and Pakistan find themselves in the global headlines daily because of their ongoing conflicts, political turmoil, oppressive regimes, and serious human-rights violations. Unsurprisingly, the report issued by the Reputation Institute ranks those countries among the least reputable nations in the world.
