Freedom House is an independent watchdog organization that supports the expansion of freedom around the world. Freedom House supports democratic change, monitors freedom, and advocates for democracy and human rights. Since its founding in 1941 by prominent Americans concerned with the mounting threats to peace and democracy, Freedom House has been a vigorous proponent of democratic values and a steadfast opponent of dictatorships of the far left and the far right.

Publications of the Pontifical Academy of Social Sciences
The fourth and sixth sessions (under Acta) of the Academy address questions of Catholicism and Democracy. There is also an archived document (under Miscellanea) from a workshop in 1996 on Democracy. For those who want to brush up (or begin to familiarize yourself with) Catholic perspectives on Democracy, this will be a good resource.

Political Theology
Political Theology is a journal that investigates and examines religious and political issues. The journal is interdisciplinary, drawing on the disciplines of theology, religious studies, politics, philosophy, ethics, cultural studies, social theory and economics. As such, it aims to reflect the diversity of religious and theological engagements with public and political life. Articles are welcome from scholars, practitioners and clergy that address religion and political life in all its variety. The journal has a review section which embraces reflections upon religion, theology, political theory, political biography, film and fiction.
