- Open Society Barometer: Can Democracy Deliver?9.60 MB
Launched in September 2023, the Open Society Barometer serves as a global reality check, painting a picture of the attitudes, concerns, and hopes of people across 30 countries—making it one of the largest studies of global public opinion on human rights and democracy ever conducted.
The 2023 Barometer is based on representative polling in 30 countries, chosen to reflect geographic, economic, and political diversity. These countries have a combined population of over 5.5-billion people.
The Open Society Barometer finds that young people around the world hold the least faith in democracy of any age group, presenting a grave threat to its future. With the climate crisis, rising income inequality, and a distrust of politicians, the question becomes: can democracy deliver?
