Nations in Transit: Democratization from Central Europe to Eurasia: 2005 (Paperback)

Unavailable. Withdrawn from sale by publisher.


Since 1995, the Nations in Transit series has monitored the status of that change and pinpointed for policymakers, researchers, journalists, and democracy advocates alike the greatest reform challenges and reform opportunities facing the countries and territories that make up this vast geographic space. Covering 27 countries, plus Kosovo, Nations in Transit 2005 evaluates a 12-month period, from January 1 to December 31, 2004, and provides comparative ratings and in-depth analysis of electoral processes, civil society, independent media, governance, judicial framework & independence, and corruption. Owing to the growing influence of local government and its relation to the reform process, this year's study provides an in-depth analysis of democratic governance at the local level, separate from the national level. Freedom House-which for more than a quarter century has rated global political rights and civil liberties in its benchmark Freedom in the World surveys-has developed a ratings system that allows for comparative analysis of reforms. Nations in Transit findings have drawn important linkages between democratic accountability, good governance, and the rule of law.

In doing so it has made clear the essential nature of all of these elements to the development of stable, free, and prosperous societies. The results are incisive, authoritative, and comprehensive. Freedom House is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization that supports democratic change, monitors freedom, and advocates for democracy and human rights.
