2021 Global Forum on Modern Direct Democracy

17-06-2020

After  twelve years, the Global Forum on Modern Direct Democracy is returning to Switzerland! The City of Bern, together with the Swiss Democracy Foundation and Democracy International, is inviting you to a fascinating Global Forum week.At this year's Forum, we want to explore the practice and future of modern direct democracy - in the worldwide hot bed of initiatives and referendums: Switzerland.

“The Practice and Future of Unfinished Democracy”  

At this year's Forum, we want to explore the practice and future of modern direct democracy - in the worldwide hot bed of initiatives and referendums: Switzerland.

Join us for a briefing tour, during which we will experience first-hand how votes are organised in the world’s most advanced direct democracy. With these insights to inform our conversations, we will turn our attention to the practice and future of modern participatory and direct democracy, not just in Bern and Switzerland, but across the globe. And then, on the very last day, we will experience the cantonal assembly in the state of Glarus. Welcome to register now!

This year, the Global Forum will have several thematic tracks including [1] The Swiss Direct Democracy practice in a global context, [2] Youth power in the times of climate change, [3] Citizens’ Assemblies to support democracy, [4] E-Voting and technology in modern democracy and [5] Global direct democracy via tools for transnational citizens participation. Send us your proposal for a workshop or presentation here.
