The 25th Forum 2000 Conference_, titled “What Now? Building Back Democratically”_, will take place on October 10-12, 2021 in Prague.
Slowly, the world is approaching the post-covid era. So, what now? How should the global democratic community build back better? For democracy, the pandemic has become a great test – both challenge and an opportunity. On one hand, Covid-19 unquestionably contributed to the global democratic decline. On the other, it has focused minds, inspired new ideas, and shed light on problems that have long remained unaddressed.
The Forum 2000 meeting will discuss ways democratic community needs to come together vis-à-vis the rising challenges, focusing principally on the following themes:
- Global cooperation of democracies
- The contest between authoritarianism and democracy in the digital realm
- The renewal of democracy via active citizenship
Due to the persisting uncertain pandemic situation, the public track of the conference will be held online.
