Subject: EIU Webinar: Democracy Index 2010
A webinar on the state of democracy in the world
Wednesday, December 15, 2010
11:00am ? 12:00pm EST (New York)
4:00pm - 5:00pm GMT (London)
The Economist Intelligence Unit?s newly released 2010 Democracy Index shows that there has been a worldwide decline in democracy since 2008. Backsliding in democracy is part of an underlying trend that has been evident for some time, but has strengthened greatly since the 2008-09 global economic crisis. Between 2006 (the year of the first issue of the Index) and 2008 there was stagnation; over the past two years, between 2008 and 2010, there has been outright retreat. The democracy score was lower in 2010 than in 2008 in 91 countries out of the 167 that are covered.
The Democracy Index highlights the impact of the global financial crisis on politics throughout most of the world, with the most significant changes happening within Europe. Some longer-standing negative trends have been exacerbated by economic distress.
Please join us for an exclusive presentation regarding this erosion of democracy. Analysts from the EIU will discuss the methodology behind the Economist Intelligence Unit?s 2010 Index of Democracy, and analyse the research results. Special attention will be devoted to trends in Latin America, Europe and Asia. Please join on December 15, 2010 at 11 AM EST/4 PM GMT to hear predictions and forecasts and ask questions about the state of democracy in the world.
