Substantial progress has been made in many countries in Europe and Central Asia and towards political stability, consolidation of democracy, rule of law, and improvement of human rights records. However, the development in several countries continues to be affected the legacy of past regimes and recent conflicts with persisting inter-ethnic tensions within and across borders, and only slowly improving sub-regional cooperation. Despite the progress, many issues need to be addressed: after a period of relative stability, indicators of democratic governance in the region have recently shown declines in many countries. The entire region still faces the consequences of past totalitarian regimes and of recent and current armed conflicts. In many parts, trust in governance institutions is low, democracy remains fragile, and restrictions on political and civil rights continue to hamper progress.
