Confronting Illiberalism

Freedom House's Nations in Transit 2018.

Please join for a discussion based on the findings of the latest edition of Nations in Transit, Freedom House’s annual survey of democratic reform in the 29 formerly communist countries from Central Europe to Central Asia.

In 2017, illiberalism established itself as the new normal in many of those states and much of Europe. For the first time since the Nations in Transit project began in 1995, there are now more consolidated Authoritarian Regimes than consolidated Democracies.

Faced with this changing tide, American and European policymakers have a choice: to resign themselves to the new normal, or to confront and overcome illiberalism by exposing the corruption, inequality, and violence that sustains it in power.
