Quality of democracy in Slovakia: IVO BAROMETER in the third quarter of 2012

On October 15, 2012 Institute for Public Affairs posted on an assessment of the development of the quality of democracy in Slovakia for the third quarter of 2012.

Within the project IVO Barometer, analysts from Institute for Public Affairs in cooperation with other experts evaluate the quality development of democracy in Slovakia in the third quarter of 2012 by overall mark 2.8.

Experts preparing the assessment within IVO Barometer found that the overall rating in the third quarter of 2012 did not change compared to the previous period as a consequence of the unchanged score in each analyzed area.

In most of the areas, concerning an assessment of developments in the third quarter of the year 2012, no such major improvement or deterioration in the quality of democracy had place, which would result in a shift in the rating.

IVO Barometer

The principal objective of the IVO Barometer, an analytical project by the Institute for Public Affairs, is to provide a foundation of basic knowledge about the actual state of affairs and development trends in the field of quality of democracy, and to put together an operative team of experts and regularly publish their assessments.

The backbone of the project is the regular evaluation of the quality of democracy in Slovakia after it became a full-fledged member of the European Union. The project’s methodology is based on systematic monitoring and analysis of the main development trends in five key areas: democratic institutions and the rule of law; legislation; projection and implementation of human and minority rights; performance of independent and public service media; and civil society.
