Overview

Since 1995, the Nations in Transit series has monitored the status of democratic change from Central Europe to Eurasia 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 29 countries and administrative areas, Nations in Transit 2008 evalutes a 12-month period, from January 1 to December 31, 2007, and provides comparative ratings and in-depth analysis of electoral processes, civil society, independent media, national democratic governance, local democratic governance, judicial framework & independence, and corruption. 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 these elements to the development of stable, free, and prosperous societies. The results are incisive, authoritative, and comprehensive.

Editorial Reviews

István Szent-Iványi
Since its beginnings, Nations in Transit has not only been a balanced and comprehensive survey of the political situation in Central and Eastern European countries and the former Soviet Union, but it has also managed to shape political discourse in the region, and occasionally even provided a well-needed impetus for change.
Thomas Carothers
As post-Communist political experiences further diversify with every passing year, the value of Nations in Transit only grows. Its incisive, objective country surveys cut to the heart of complex political realities, greatly aiding comparative analysis by scholars and policy makers alike.
Janusz Bugajski
At a time when the methods and principles of democratic reform in various parts of the globe are under scrutiny, Nations in Transit continues to enlighten analysts and activists on the goals of democratization and its successes and shortcomings in the Wider Europe.
Stephen Boucher
Notre Europe uses Nations in Transit extensively in tis research. It is a reliable source of information, effectively presented. It is one of our key references when assessing a country's progress on the path towards democratization in Europe.
