About This Lesson

Around the world, people have had to fight for the right to vote. Over the past 75 years, if looked at as a whole, the state of democracy in the world has grown better—for example, in more and more countries, elections are more transparent, democratic and fair. But also today, in many parts of the world, there are governments that act more authoritarian than democratic—and universal suffrage is not yet a reality. As many countries are now facing crucial elections, voting has never been more important. Keeping the spotlight on international examples, these lessons focus on progress made for voters’ rights.
