The Terrorism, Transnational Crime and Corruption Center (TRaCCC) at George Mason University and Accountability Lab invite you to join us for a session that will dive into how the Summit for Democracy commitments can be translated into meaningful, sustainable reforms on the ground through concerted civic action. Too often, commitments at the international level by governments do not lead to change for citizens. Cutting across the Summit’s three key themes, this conversation will draw on examples from around the world as to how local change-makers- with support from forward-looking funders and donors- can articulate key needs, mobilize collective action, and identify cutting-edge approaches to fighting corruption, pushing back against authoritarianism and protecting human rights. The goal is to begin a shared conversation about these issues and what a new paradigm might look like for smart, dynamic donor support for grassroots democratic actions.
