Resilient Democracies - Event series

Wednesday, 30 June 2021, 10:00-12:30 CET via Facebook Live

Democracies around the world are under pressure. The economic and socio-political performance of democracy has been challenged by right-wing populist movements and the mismanagement of various global crises. The future of social democracy depends to a large extent on how we can build together resistant, resilient and efficient democracies, capable of facing the challenges of the future with our values?

The Progressive Alliance, together with the Foundation for European Progressive Studies (FEPS)and theFriedrich Ebert Foundation (FES) are addressing this question by holding a series of debates at the regional level (Europe, Africa, Asia, Latin America) with progressive figures from various backgrounds, before presenting their results in November 2021 during the Global Progressive Forum Conference.

This event was the third seminar in a series of four. Station 3 looked at Asia.

Programme

Key questions addressed:

  • What are the concrete pathways for democracy to become more resilient in your region so as to contribute to its long-term stability?
  • What is the impact of extra-regional actors on the pursuit of this objective?
  • How and which international actions, actors and alliances can support strengthening a model of resilient democracy in your region?
