Play video

In anticipation of the Summit, Carnegie Endowment for International Peace on 3 December 2021 will take stock of lessons learned on international democracy support in conflict-affected contexts and discuss how to formulate a new playbook to assist democracies in fragile settings. Topics to discuss will include potentially overlapping goals of democracy support and mitigating conflict, and what lessons can be drawn from existing experiences.

A live-stream and recording of the discussion will be available above.

Speakers include:

  • Frances Z. Brown, senior fellow and co-director of Carnegie’s Democracy, Conflict, and Governance Program
  • Rebecca Hamilton, associate professor of law at American University Washington College of Law
  • Aarya Nijat, program officer for the Center for International Private Enterprise's programs in South Asia
  • Patrick Quirk, senior director for strategy, research, and the Center for Global Impact at the International Republican Institute (IRI)
  • Scott Worden, director of Afghanistan and Central Asia Programs at the U.S. Institute of Peace
  • Uzra Zeya, under secretary for civilian security, democracy, and human rights at the U.S. Department of State
