What This Report Explores

The Democracy Perception Index (DPI) aims to understand the global crisis that democracy is facing from the perspective of ordinary people from around the world. It is the largest annual study on people’s perception of democracy, representing over 75% of the world’s population. The Democracy Perception Index (DPI) was released ahead of the Alliance of Democracies Foundation’s fourth-annual Copenhagen Democracy Summit, held virtually with leaders and democracy activists from around the world.
