“2005 marked the beginning of the global democratic recession,” wrote Cambridge University’s “Global Satisfaction with Democracy 2020″  report.

“That year also marked the all-time high point for satisfaction with democracy.” In 2005, just 38.7% of citizens globally were dissatisfied with democracy. “Since then, the proportion of dissatisfied citizens has risen by 18.8% to an all-time 57.5% high.”
