The international think thank GLOBSEC has published a new report “Voices of Central and Eastern Europe: Perceptions of democracy & governance in 10 EU countries”. The Centre of Eastern European Policy Studies (CEEPS) has also participated in the development of the report.
The report provides a unique insight into satisfaction with democracy and current governance systems in 10 Central and Eastern European countries. By observing links between the support for liberal democracy over autocracy, satisfaction with the governance and life, or inclination to believe in conspiracy and misinformation narratives, the report reveals fragile spots that require further discussion on multiple levels.
CEEPS has participated in the development of the report by providing context and data interpretation to analyse the role and impact of conspiracy theories on public views and thinking about democracy and governance in Latvia.
