Freedom in the World 2004

Já Está disponível o relatório de 2004 da Freedom House que analisa o estado e a evolução das liberdades polítca e económica em todo mundo, país a país.

In 2003, freedom?s gains outpaced setbacks by a margin of nearly two to one. Despite deadly, sporadic terrorism around the world and a year of significant political volatility, in all, 25 countries showed significant improvements (with three making gains in their freedom category and 22 improving their numerical scores). The year also saw 13 countries suffer significant erosion of their freedom (with five dropping in category status and 8 declining in their numerical scores). Freedom categories?Free, Partly Free, and Not Free?represent a broad assessment of a country?s level of liberty, while numerical changes in political rights and civil liberties represent a more nuanced 1 to 7 scale, with 1 representing the highest levels of freedom and 7 representing the most repressive practices.
As 2003 drew to a close, there were 88 Free countries (one fewer than last year). There were 55 Partly Free countries, the same number as last year. And there were 49 Not Free countries, an increase of one from the previous year.

"A society that does not recognize that each individual has values of his own which he is entitled to follow can have no respect for the dignity of the individual and cannot really know freedom."
