Solidarity Across Cultures: Working Together for Democracy

The Assembly built upon the democracy promotion strategies developed at previous assemblies and brought together more than 500 democracy activists, practitioners, and scholars from all global regions.

Workshops focused on ways to expand democracy movements within all cultures, as well as on ways to develop mutually supporting cross-cultural relationships to advance democracy in all global regions. Participants met to advance the World Movement’s ongoing Defending Civil Society and Assessing Democracy Assistance projects, and to address the challenges to democracy work in such areas as:

  • anti-corruption,
  • free expression,
  • youth engagement,
  • independent media,
  • human rights,
  • local governance,
  • elections,
  • women’s political participation, and
  • ethnic and religious inclusion.
