Freedom in the world 2015. Discarding democracy: Return to the iron fist

This annual report evaluates the condition of political rights and civil liberties in 195 countries and 15 territories. For the ninth consecutive year, the report showed an overall decline. Particularly notable were developments in Egypt, which endured across-the-board reversals in its democratic institutions following a military coup. There were also serious setbacks to democratic rights in other large, politically influential countries, including Russia, Ukraine, Azerbaijan, Turkey, Venezuela, and Indonesia.
