This Case Study is part of The Global State of Democracy 2023 Report

Despite institutional challenges, Israel ranks highly in the Global State of Democracy Indices (GSoD Indices) and is the only country in Western Asia with high scores across most democratic performance categories, boasting Credible Elections, Freedom of the Press and some Judicial Independence.

The GSoD Indices do not take into account Israel’s undemocratic actions in the Occupied Palestinian Territories, which have been widely criticized as akin to apartheid against Palestinians by Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch and the United Nations Special Rapporteur for the situation of human rights in Palestinian Territory occupied since 1967.
