Can the Summit for Democracy Support Open Governance?
16 May 2022 09:00 - 10:00Virtual Event | Organised by Accountability Lab, International IDEA | Held in United States (EST) in English
Defending against authoritarianism
The US Government is currently leading a Year of Action (YoA) through the Summit for Democracy (S4D) process- which has important overlaps and implications for the open governance agenda in participating countries and beyond. How can we ensure we are maximizing the opportunity this presents? Join Accountability Lab and International IDEA to hear from government representatives and civil society activists from around the world – including from Nepal, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Canada, and Norway – as to how they are using the S4D YoA to bolster democracy, build accountability and ensure open governance; and how the S4D process can adapt going forwards.
