Strengthening Democracy in Uncertain Times
21st Forum 2000 Conference
October 8–10, 2017, Prague and other cities
The democratic world seems to be at a crossroads. Trust in institutions is declining. Belief in democracy and willingness to democracy are weakening. Democratic processes around the world suddenly – and quite paradoxically - seem to be turning against the very foundations of democracy. Traditional liberal ideas are losing self-confidence in the global competition. Has democracy, as we know it, expired? Is it in transition? To what? Are we facing a systemic change? Has democracy become distorted, is it out of control? Has it not been able to reflect the changes in the society and the technological developments?
