Freedom in the World, the Freedom House flagship survey whose findings have been published annually since 1972, is the standard-setting comparative assessment of global political rights and civil liberties. The survey ratings and narrative reports on 193 countries and a group of select territories are used by policy makers, the media, international corporations, and civic activists and human rights defenders to monitor trends in democracy and track improvements and setbacks in freedom worldwide. Press accounts of the survey findings appear in hundreds of influential newspapers in the United States and abroad and form the basis of numerous radio and television reports. The Freedom in the World political rights and civil liberties ratings are determined through a multi-layered process of research and evaluation by a team of regional analysts and eminent scholars. The analysts used a broad range of sources of information, including foreign and domestic news reports, academic studies, nongovernmental organizations, think tanks, individual professional contacts, and visits to the region, in conducting their research. The methodology of the survey is derived in large measure from the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and these standards are applied to all countries and territories, irrespective of geographical location, ethnic or religious composition, or level of economic development.

About the Author:

Freedom House is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization that supports democratic change, monitors freedom, and advocates for democracy and human rights.

Review:

While there are many sources of economic data, good political data is hard to find. Freedom House's survey is an exception. For anyone concerned with the state of freedom, or simply with the state of the world, Freedom in the World is an indispensable guide. (Fareed Zakaria, CNN Newsweek)

Freedom in the World is an indispensable reference. (Samuel P. Huntington, Director, Harvard University Center for International Affairs)

An essential source, Freedom in the World works from the assumption that freedom is a universal value, not reserved for the rich. (Francis Fukuyama, author of The End of History and the Last Man)

Freedom in the World is the Michelin Guide to democracy's development. (Daniel Henninger, Wall Street Journal)

This overview will be indispensable to anyone interested in political and civil liberties. (Publishers Weekly)

The explosion of democracy is a central development of our era. Freedom House provides an invaluable resource in this authoritative survey of the on-the-ground realities of the state of freedom around the world. (Jessica Tuchman Mathews, Carnegie Endowment for International Peace)

Freedom in the World is an invaluable source for scholars and essential reading for policymakers and political leaders concerned with the promotion and consolidation of democracy. (Orlando Patterson, Harvard University)

Freedom in the World 2010 is the latest version of an annual survey published since 1972. This report attempts to measure the degree of democracy and political freedom in every nation and significant disputed territory globally. The Freedom House rankings are widely used and often treated as authoritative by academics, the media, policy makers, civic activists, the United Nations, and the World Bank, among other entities. The work is arranged alphabetically by nation or territory and features an analysis of trends in democracy, political rights, and civil liberties. Included are tables and charts, and a section dedicated to the methodology used in the compilation of material and statistics. This well-organized, easy-to-use work will benefit readers at all levels of interest and expertise. Summing Up: Highly recommended. (CHOICE)
