Pursuant to Section 2121 of the ADVANCE Democracy Act of 2007 (P. L. 110-53), the Department of State has submitted the "Advancing Freedom and Democracy Report 2009" to the Congress regarding U.S. efforts to promote democracy and human rights in nondemocratic countries and countries undergoing democratic transitions worldwide. The Department chose the 106 countries represented after taking into consideration the Act’s definition of a "non-democratic country or democratic transition country" and the requirement that the Department take into account the views of nongovernmental organizations.
