Global Monitor of COVID-19's impact on Democracy and Human Rights

The Global Monitor of COVID-19’s Impact on Democracy and Human Rights is a qualitative monitor and a “one-stop-shop” online global monitoring tool/of the democracy and human rights implications of measures adopted by governments around the world in the context of the COVID-19 crisis, specifically in the 162 countries included in International IDEA’s Global State of Democracy (GSoD) Indices.  

It is aimed to be a user-friendly tool for policy-makers, civil society organizations, journalists, and the general public to easily access in one place all democracy and human rights-related information on COVID-19 measures, by country, by region and globally.  

The 162 COVID-19 country profiles also provide information on the political regime type of countries and pre-pandemic (2019) democratic performance scores and levels for the five attributes (sub-divided into a total of 29 aspects) of democracy in International IDEA’s Global State of Democracy Framework.
