Freedom in the World Report 2016

The world was battered by crises that fueled xenophobic sentiment in democratic countries, undermined the economies of states dependent on the sale of natural resources, and led authoritarian regimes to crack down harder on dissent. These developments contributed to the 10th consecutive year of decline in global freedom.

Freedom in the World 2016 evaluates the state of freedom in 195 countries and 15 territories during calendar year 2015.
