THEME: TRANSPARENCY AND DEMOCRATIC VALUES
2019 recorded again a severe deterioration of democracy worldwide, mainly explained by the decline in Latin America and Sub-Saharan Africa with a deterioration in the majority of the themes related to democracy i.e. civil liberties, electoral process and function of government.
It was a year of protests in several countries, including Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador and Venezuela in Latin America. Also Asia has not been spared, with the epicentre of the protests in Hong Kong. Africa was also strongly affected, mainly by protests in Cameroon, Ethiopia, Nigeria and South Africa. These social demonstrations, that also emerged in authoritarian countries, might bring hope for a regeneration of democracy, which would bring solutions to corruption, inequalities and violation of human rights.
