The latest edition of The Economist Intelligence Unit’s annual Democracy Index, assessing the state of global democracy in 2019, recorded the worst average global score since the index began in 2006. The score for every region of the world either declined or stagnated, and the democratic recession was seen across all categories of the index with the exception of political participation, the EIU observes.
Joan Hoey, Editor, Democracy Index, and Agathe Demarais, Global Forecasting Director, will discuss the key findings from this year’s Index on Tuesday 4th February at 11.00am Eastern Time (4.00pm UK Time), covering:
- The primary drivers behind the regression in the global democracy score
- Themes and stories to emerge from the report: which countries were the biggest movers?
- Whether this year’s index can give insight into what to expect in 2020 and beyond
There will also be a short Q&A at the end of the webinar. To participate, register here.
