Freedom in the World 2007 could not have been completed without the contributions of numerous Freedom House staff and consultants. The section entitled “The Survey Team” contains a detailed list of the writers and advisors without whose efforts this project would not have been possible.

Several other Freedom House staff members provided valuable input on the country reports and/or ratings, including Roland Kovats of the Budapest office; Luis Cervantes of the Mexico City office; Frances Abouzeid and Rama Ishaq of the Amman office; Juhani Grossmann of the Kyiv office; Lazar Nikolic of the Belgrade office; and Jessica Barnes, Peter Lee, Mariam Memarsadeghi, and Xavier Utset of the Washington, D.C. office. Astrid Larson of the New York office supplied critical administrative support. Thomas Webb, research assistant, was involved in various stages of the survey process. Jennifer Windsor, executive director of Freedom House, and Thomas Melia, deputy executive director of Freedom House, provided overall guidance for the project.

Freedom House would like to thank the generous financial support provided to Freedom in the World by the Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation, the Smith Richardson Foundation, the Lilly Endowment, and the F.M. Kirby Foundation.
