According to the report’s authors, “there were signs during the past year that the world’s long freedom recession may be bottoming out,” which “would set the stage for a future recovery.”

The remaining ones are given ratings of “not free” or “partly free.”
Progress: According to the report, elections and power transfers in Latin America and Africa, as well as a rollback in COVID-19 restrictions that affected freedoms of assembly and movement in eight countries, drove the improvement in freedoms that Freedom House documented.
