Freedom House is an independent watchdog organization dedicated to the expansion of freedom and democracy around the world.
Each year, Freedom House analyzes the world’s nations and territories, examining the electoral process, political pluralism and participation, the functioning of the government, freedom of expression and of belief, the rule of law, and individual rights. Their results are published in their annual report, Freedom in the World.
Freedom House’s 2017 rankings are out. Again, Israel is the only nation in the Middle east that is ranked as “free”.
