Join us this Friday for a special half-day Democracy Conference featuring keynote speaker Yascha Mounk!

The Mark Palmer Forum for the Advancement of Democracy will examine the challenge posed by modern authoritarianism and how governments and activists may overcome it.

Faure Gnassingbé, the president of Togo, has overseen deeply flawed and biased elections since he was installed by the military after the death of his father.

Regional leaders’ handling of a term-limit dispute could either strengthen or undermine recent democratic progress.
Why is democracy declining worldwide?

I am disappointed. Check your data before you offer your support. My country (Cyprus) is under Turkish occupation since 1974 and you present the occupied part as a country and a safe one (!). It is no...t a country, it is recognised only by the invaders who created it. Also, when it is common knowledge that there are illegal immigrants, jihadists and corruption, all monitored by Turkey. Deeply disappointed with your bias! See More

Freedom house commented recently that the duterte administration maintains a keyboard army. I find this very offending. The group failed to research about the real situation in the philippines and has... the nerve to issue comments. Thats why they deserve a low score. See More

I think Freedom House come from the heart of authentic humans. These are people who understand that in life two of a kind did occurs in all spheres of living life. Where there is good also bad will i...nvite it self.
Humans must choose to be righteous since evil is ever in the air. To be cold and vicious people can just stay and look, then evil spirit succumbs,Now organization that bring forth human survival are Godly inspired yet are demanded all over the world since evil is the down way side. It invites self. Keep it up Freedom House

A very biased organization that has all knives out to destroy Egypt, using human rights as their trojan horse. Have just seen some of your articles and a map of Egypt with only a small part of the Si...nai and no Halayeb or Shalateen to the south of Egypt. What is this map about? Are you working towards reducing the terrirtory in Egypt and are doing so surreptitiously? Amazing how those preaching about freedom and democracy are the least ones to uphold these. in realpolitik. I suggest you change the name of your organization, as it certainly has nothing to do with freedom. See More

They give prices to persons involved in dictatorships and people that can do anything (publish lies and later do not tell us that were lies) to kick off governments that do not share his view of the t...hings. In Argentina, there was freedom of speech during the past government, and that let to the "fox news" like Argentinian channels to boil hate against left-wings parties candidates. Those candidates are not perfect but nowadays they are hiding from the people the defect of the actual government, meanwhile, they make contracts and change the laws to earn more money in a lot of different ways (destroying the competitors, removing certain tv channels that do not share the liberal view, etc) See More

I, LuQman Abdurrahman, pray for the opportunity to uphold the excellence of Freedom House in the cause to expose my innocence. The (GAO) Referral: 62272 on December 15, 2014, the Government Accountabi...lity Office made a referral on the wrong doing of an illegal payment by the United States Treasury to pay a former Federal District Court Judge named Patricia J. Boyle to commit the crime of Fraud on the Federal District Court in Detroit, Michigan. This illegal payment was an abuse of and waste of public funds: No court official for the above Federal District Court reported the Federal District Court Clerk Lying Federal District Court Docket Card; reported the Fraud of Patricia J. Boyle to the Administrative Office of the United States Courts. So the above Administrator can have the United States Attorney General investigate and thereafter report the following: 1. The violation of Fed.R.Civ.Proc. Rule 79(b) not able to produce the existence of a court order from the retired Federal District Court Judge Patricia J. Boyle; 2. Report the Fraud of Patricia J. Boyle to terminate the False Records Keeping in the National Archives and Records Administration in Chicago, Illinois, the False Records Keeping in the Internal Revenue Service in the Fraudulent Tax Return filed by Patricia J. Boyle. All the False Records Keeping cause by the Fraud of Patricia J. Boyle in the Bank Fraud that cause the concealment of the Fraudulent Check Paid the Washtenaw County Sheriff. Since the Attorney as Michigan House of Representative Michael E. Nye cheated LuQman Abdurrahman out of a Demand For Public Hearing: The Attorney Galal Elkholy served the above Michigan House of Representative the Demand For Public Hearing in February, 1993. The innocence of LuQman Abdurrahman is and has been on the Washtenaw County Prosecutor, t he Michigan Department of Attorney General did nothing to prevent the Fraud of Patricia J. Boyle by preventing the violation of MRPC Rule 3.8 Special Responsibilities of a Prosecutor. (a) The prosecutor in a criminal case shall refrain from prosecuting a charge that prosecutor knows is not supported by probable cause. The failure to prevent the Fraud of Patricia J. Boyle cause the Forgery of the Washtenaw County Circuit Court Judgment of Sentence to Prison to prove LuQman Abdurrahman has no legal conviction and no legal sentence to prove LuQman Abdurrahman is innocent.

Freedom House defines freedom as freedom of the press. A lot of countries censor their media either by the government or by an organization such as ISIS or drug cartels.

Their annual reports on Freedom in World are excellent measures for examining political rights, civil liberties, and freedom of the press in nations around the world.

They make risky claims, then don't respond to people's concerns. This is just a propaganda agency, nothing more.

To all the former U.S. president and a present and coming and to the American people
U.S. President claims that he is fighting terrorism with the help of the European Union and NATO
But when the terro...rism happened in Egypt the first what doing Obama stop military aid to Egypt
It is the recipient of the cessation of military aid is to counter terrorism and protect the world?
After the death sentence on some members of terrorist groups, we have Obama overlooks its ugly head for criticizing this provision
Why Obama defends terrorism in Egypt?
Why Obama at the same time kills innocent people in other countries, claiming the face of terrorism?
I say clearly that who supports terrorism in the world and provides them with money and weapons is the U.S. government under the supervision of U.S. President personally
The U.S. government, headed by Obama, the American people money are given to terrorist groups, while there are poor Americans need a fraction of this money to be able to buy food and raise their children

American "democracy" for export. We never see what's happening in our country but will always tell how to live to others. Ignorant hypocrisy.
Help raise money for Freedom House.
