The ratings are based on a scale of 1 to 7, with 7 representing the highest level of democratic progress and 1 the lowest. The Democracy Score is an average of ratings for the categories tracked in a given year. The Democracy Percentage, introduced in 2020, is a translation of the Democracy Score to the 0-100 scale, where 0 equals least democratic and 100 equals most democratic. See the methodology.
- Judicial Framework and Independence score declined from 3.25 to 3.00. The country’s judicial and law enforcement institutions struggled with escalating inefficiency and political pressure. In Republika Srpska, officials failed to investigate the March 2018 murder of David Dragičević and protect his family from reprisals by police believed to be responsible for his death. Meanwhile, authorities at all levels mishandled an influx of migrants, denying them access to shelter, legal aid, and other necessities.
