Defending against authoritarianism
On the eve of the Summit for Democracy, the National Endowment for Democracy will convene a dynamic forum featuring some of the world’s most important voices from the frontlines of the democratic struggle, including this year’s Nobel Peace Prize winner, Philippine journalist Maria Ressa.
Activists from Hong Kong, Nicaragua, Nigeria, and Russia will also discuss global challenges to democracy in conversation with US Legislators. Some of America’s most dedicated and experienced democracy advocates will share their insights and expertise on how to rebuild democratic momentum. Former heads of government who helped lead their countries through democratic transitions will reflect on how to sustain democracy after a democratic transition.
We hope you will join us virtually on December 8 for what is sure to be a thought-provoking and energizing prelude to the Summit for Democracy.
