International Day of Democracy conference

International day for democracy, democracy

The European Parliament is hosting this year again a conference celebrating the International Day of Democracy, organised in cooperation with the European External Action Service, the European Commission and organisations dedicated to democracy support[1]. The focus of the conference will be on the EU leadership for democracy, its internal and external dimensions, as well as the challenges facing democracies today. The morning sessions will be followed by workshops covering, among other topics, technological innovation and its impact on democracy, advancing democracy through female leadership, and innovative practices for democracy support.

This is a public event, targeted at the democratic community of practice and all those interested in the latest trends and challenges linked to democracy promotion.


Come join us to celebrate our annual event commemorating the International Day of Democracy, which will take place on Tuesday, 18.09.2018 at the European Parliament in Brussels.
