Democratic Challenges in Ukraine

On April 27, Freedom House released its report Sounding the Alarm: Protecting Democracy in Ukraine at an event at the Open Society Foundations. The report’s authors – David Kramer (Executive Director, Freedom House), Damon Wilson (Executive Vice President, Atlantic Council), and Robert Nurick (Senior Fellow, Atlantic Council) – voiced concerns over increased backsliding in human rights and democracy which led to Ukraine’s downgrade from “Free” to “Partly Free” in “Freedom in the World 2011.”

Freedom House is an independent watchdog organization that supports democratic change, monitors the status of freedom around the world, and advocates for democracy and human rights.
