Global Forum on Modern Direct Democracy
26 September at 12:00 am — 29 September at 12:00 am
The Global Forum on Modern Direct Democracy is a conference of journalists, scholars, officials, election administrators, activists and others interested in direct democracy. The Global Forum meets every 1-2 years for a free, public event and has visited all six continents, and convened major global conferences in Switzerland (2008), South Korea (2009), California (2010), Uruguay (2012), Tunisia (2015), and the Basque Country, Spain (2016).
As we gather in Rome for the 10th anniversary of the Global Forum on Modern Direct Democracy, people from cities around the world will discuss the particular characteristics of what makes a city global and democratic—and then enshrine those definitions in a charter for the world’s “democracy cities.”Rome, Italy Democracy International firstname.lastname@example.org DD/MM/YYYY 15
