BTI Transformation Index Governance Report 2020: Some Reform-Minded Governments Withstand Negative Trend

Bertelsmann Stiftung : 2020

The Index shows that democratic regression, rampant corruption and deepening polarization are interlinked and mutually reinforcing each other in many of the 137 states surveyed.The findings of the governance report suggest that political decision-makers are increasingly putting interests of political power and economic gain above the common good. Opponents of reform are expanding their influence within the marketplace of ideas, and parties to conflict are less often seeking to avoid polarizing or even violent confrontations.
