State of Democracy Assessments

Our State of Democracy assessment methodology helps citizens assess the quality of their democracy and define priority areas for policy and democratic reform.

The assessment frameworks enable citizens to periodically monitor the health of their democracy and can contribute to strengthening national and local governments' responsiveness.

This two minute introductory video describes International IDEA's State of Democracy Assessment Framework and how it empowers citizens to assess their own democracy.
