NEW RELEASE: The Global State of Democracy: Exploring Democracy's Resilience

The Global State of Democracy seeks to address the lack of analytical material on democracy building and the quality of democracy internationally, and to bridge the gap between academic research, policy development and democracy assistance initiatives. It introduces the new Global State of Democracy indices as a key evidence base to inform policy interventions and identify problem-solving approaches to trends affecting the quality of democracy.
