We’re interested in democracy as a human right. More specifically, we think democracy is an important social good for the reasons stated here. Consequently, we’re also very interested in measurement of democracy: how much more/less democratic is the world becoming? We track different democracy measurements (see here and here) as well as surveys on public opinion regarding democracy (see here). But we don’t only look at the data; we’re also interested in how they come about and the problems encountered by those measuring democracy. Below you can find an overview of the posts dealing with issues of democracy measurement.
