Annual Conference on global democracy


"Global democracy development – between dream and trauma” was the subject of Democracy International's annual conference that took place in Fuldatal (close to Frankfurt/ Main), in Germany, from 26 to 28 June 2015.

Democracy International had organised the weekend event in partnership with its German partner organisation Mehr Demokratie. Speakers from North Africa, Latin America and Eastern Europe presented their views on whether democracy is progressing in those parts of the world or whether democracy is stagnating or possibly even deteriorating. The debate on Sunday focussed on the question of how free trade can become democratic and how to solve the democratic deficit of the EU.
