We’re inviting you to the Democracy Conference!

We believe that the foundations of the world’s democracies have long received too little attention. Just like anything else, democracies fall apart piece by piece, if not constantly repaired.

At the same time, authoritarian regimes have switched from concealing their actions to being openly proud, bringing the wars of the 20th century to today.

We do not expect that we can improve all these things from Estonia – but we believe that we can and in fact must do our part. That is why we are convening all those who are concerned about the future of democracies to discuss problems and solutions and to launch the new Center for Developing Democracy in Estonia.

In the conference we will discuss the fundamental challenges of democracies with a former member of the European Parliament, Marju Lauristin (Estonia), Jenik Radon (Columbia University, USA) and Anthony Zacharzewski (Democratic Society, Belgium). We will also learn from our partners from the Nordic countries: Karolina Olofsson (The Oslo Center, Norway), Gary Klaukka (Demo Finland, Finland) and Teele Pehk (Green Tiger, Estonia) to share their firsthand experience and insight on developing democracies.

The conference is in English. Tickets are available until 2nd June.
