Global Democracy Coalition Forum

A global multi-stakeholder coalition for democracy (Global Democracy Coalition) is gathering in a virtual forum to be held for 24 hours on 7 December 2021, convened by the International Institute for Democracy and Electoral Assistance (IDEA). The purpose of the Global Democracy Coalition Forum is to galvanize a global conversation on democracy, as inputs to the Summit for Democracy which will be held on 9 and 10 December 2021.

The Forum seeks to provide a platform for voices, actors, and issues that may not be part of the official Summit and is thereby aimed to broaden the discussions of the Summit. Issues will range from the integrity of elections, electoral assistance, gender and democracy, disinformation, malign finance, youth and democracy, state of democracy globally, in Asia, Africa and the United States, SDG 16, democratic backsliding and rising authoritarianism, democratic leadership, civic education, role of media, freedom of speech, transnational repression, and development and democracy, among others.

Over 35+ webinars, organized by as many organizations and bringing together over 180+ democracy organizations, activists, advocates, experts, academics, students, politicians, and thought leaders from all over the world to discuss challenges, opportunities, and solutions to reinvigorate democracy worldwide.
