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 the Friedrich 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 is the final seminar in a series of four. Station 4 will be looking at Europe.
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 external and 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?
