Bertelsmann Transformation Index 2006

Toward Democracy and a Market Economy

Edited by Bertelsmann Stiftung

Social, political, and economic changes leading to democracy and a market economy require both the political will to reform and the capacity for strategic management among responsible actors. How manageable is this transformation? How successful are developing and transition countries around the world at managing systemic change? The Bertelsmann Transformation Index offers answers by reporting on 58 performance indicators of political and economic reform in 119 countries in transition. Each country report analyzes the current status of the processes leading to democracy and a market economy, as well as successes and setbacks over the past years. The reports also focus on how development and transformation policies have been strategically organized.
