Central bank independence usually safeguarded by law

But one in 10 respondents see their autonomy threatened

A majority of central banks believe that their governing laws sufficiently protect their independence, the Governance Benchmarks 2024 reveals.

Nearly nine-tenths (87%) of 46 respondents expressed this confidence in their answers. By contrast, a minority (13%) say their laws do not sufficiently protect their independence.

Additionally, some 15.6% of 45 central banks fear certain factors could weaken their independence in future.
