You are invited to participate in a 10 minutes survey about International IDEA´s Global State of Democracy Initiative.

In November 2019, International IDEA launched the second edition of the Global State of Democracy (GSoD) Report, its flagship publication. Based on the GSoD Indices, International IDEA´s quantitative democracy measure which captures the developments across all the democratic aspects of its conceptual framework since 1975, this report provides evidence-based analysis of the global and regional state of democracy, including relevant country analysis.

The evaluation is intended to assess and identify lessons and recommendations from the second edition of the GSoD and contribute to the development of the next edition. It is also intended to get your views on the other knowledge products in the GSoD initiative, with the aim of better adjusting them to the needs of their users. Your responses to the survey will be anonymous. We respect your privacy and your personal information will not be used for any other purpose beyond this survey.

If you have any questions about the survey or about the evaluation, please contact Elisenda Ballesté Buxó at e.ballestebuxo@idea.int

We look forward to your feedback and thank you for your participation.
