Freedom House responds to political commands

Summary of Disinformation

Listing of Azerbaijan among the “not free” states in the 2019 Freedom House report is a result of a political order. The political framing of this organisation’s annual reports is visible. This organisation’s assessment of Azerbaijan is subjective. This report is a very ugly step taken to put Azerbaijan under the influence of certain foreign political and economic circles.


Conspiracy theory. No evidence given.

Freedom House Freedom in the World index is produced each year by a team of in-house and external analysts and expert advisers from the academic, think tank, and human rights communities. The analysts, who prepare the draft reports and scores, use a broad range of sources, including news articles, academic analyses, reports from nongovernmental organisations, individual professional contacts, and on-the-ground research.
