Freedom House: struggling for whose freedom? and with whom?

Filed under: Mwalimu (Vol 2.1. - First Quarter 2009) — newritings @ 8:37 pm

In this short essay, I argue that Freedom House (FH) is a partisan organization and not a genuine NGO, and thus their work, at best, must not be used as a first resort, since there are many shortcomings of their vision and resultant scholarship. In addition, progressive organisations advocating for human rights and good governance, amongst them Transparency International, must henceforth stop using these reports. I detail the reasons to support these assertions hereunder.
