Moral Freedom around the World

The Foundation for the Advancement of Liberty has released the second edition of the World Index of Moral Freedom, which it publishes biennially. This time the co-authors are Juan Pina (the Foundation’s secretary-general) and Australian scholar Emma Watson. The index measures and ranks the degree of moral freedom attained by one hundred and sixty countries. To do so, it takes into account five areas related to the main moral debates of our time.

The question the Foundation aims at answering is who takes the moral decisions in each country: the state or the individual. Once again the Netherlands lead the ranking of moral freedom and it is the only country scoring over ninety out of one hundred possible points, thus achieving the “highest” moral freedom label. In the upper part of our classification high competition and strong advances may be observed as the amount of countries with “very high” moral freedom grows from three to nine. If you wish to read all the findings of this second edition and view the tables (general and 2018 vs 2016), please click on the shortened link, which you are kindly requested to distribute in social media with the following hashtag: #WIMF2018
