The 10th edition of the World Forum for Democracy will take place between 7th and 9th of November 2022, at the Council of Europe, in Strasbourg, under the theme : “Democracy: a new hope?”. It will be devoted to assessing the key contributing factors to democratic decline, considering how these can be addressed, and exploring what kind of democratic future is desirable, and possible, in the interest of people across the world.
As in previous sessions, the Congress of Local and Regional Authorities will take an active part in this Forum and will sponsor Lab 7 “Polarisation and democratic engagement”. This Lab is expected to take place on the second day of the Forum (Tuesday 8th November). In addition, the Congress members will actively participate in other Labs and Forum Talks as discussants, panelists, and participants on a variety of topics such as youth participation, e-democracy, social inclusion, protection of activists and human rights’ defenders, etc.
Registration is open to all participants on the World Forum for Democracy website
