I recently discovered this institution and website. Part of it has come from various talks I have heard. A few of the points have been that democracy is not just having elections, but having the institutions and education to go behind it and have people involved, and that it is difficult to have a democracy at below a per capita income of $5,000 (GNI/Capita). These may not have been from Freedomhouse, but it is all related.

I suggest that you check out their website, and, if you're into an assessment of the Republic of Moldova, read the Country Report or Press Freedom Report.
