Session Overview
Virtual Visit - Netherlands Institute for Multiparty Democracy (NIMD): The dilemma of democracy promotion
Thursday, 08/July/2021:
9:30am - 10:30am

Session Abstract

Democracy was a key international standard for many years, firmly anchored in conventions, declarations and commitments, as well as in national laws. This standard is now challenged as only one of several governance options. China is ensuring buy in for its autocratic model by supporting developing countries. Democracies have until now failed to  formulate a joint strategy regarding the rise of autocracy, in order to curb the tide. The EU member states are divided; opposing geopolitical and economic interests hamper joint policy-making.  The result: more than one-third of the world’s population currently live under authoritarian rule. This virtual visit to NIMD will discuss democracy trends worldwide and NIMD’s response. In addition, the dilemmas faced by democracy promotion programmes will be highlighted and discussed with the visitors.
