Strengthening Democracy in Uncertain Times

21st Forum 2000 Conference


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 the willingness to embrace 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?
