Since 1978, Freedom House regional experts, consultants, and human rights specialists have produced this distinguished, annual survey of the global state of freedom. Monitoring progress and decline in political rights and civil liberties, the report covers 192 nations and 18 related and disputed territories. It is an indispensable reference for the media, policymakers, academics, and researchers who respect the survey's judgments and appreciate the simplicity of its methodology. Freedom in the World contains both comparative ratings and written narratives and is now the standard reference work for measuring the ebb and flow of freedom on a global basis.
Freedom House is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization that supports democratic change, monitors freedom, and advocates for democracy and human rights.
