Global Democracy In Decline?

Sumedha Dasgupta, Senior Analyst, Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU)

Global Democracy In Decline?

The Economist Intelligence Unit released their annual democracy index which provides a snapshot of the state of democracy in 165 countries and 2 territories. This year’s report title which is “AGE of Conflict” is not an auspicious one but aptly describes the current state with Wars in Ukraine and Gaza still raging with no end to the cycle of violence. We speak to Sumedha Dasgupta, Senior Analyst at EIU to find out how Malaysia ranks and is the world becoming more or less democratic.
