The launch will include a high-level panel discussion on how redesigning social contracts can help revitalize democratization around the world. In addition, International IDEA is excited to announce the launch of the Democracy Tracker, a new qualitative database of democracy and human rights developments created under the Global State of Democracy Initiative.
