Forum 2000 Conference Communication Campaign has started

As a part of the preparations for this year's Forum 2000 Conference, we have launched a communication campaign via online media, radio, and television. The campaign includes brand new and slightly provocative visuals that will soon appear in the streets of Prague and other cities throughout the Czech Republic. We would like to thank our creative partner VCCP as well as the main media partner, Czech Television, and the media partners Economia, Denník N, Prague TV, Radio 1, Radio Free Europe, and Project Syndicate!

Once again, Democratic Solidarity will be a part of Forum 2000 Conference with topics related to the state of democracy in Latin America. One of the main panels covering this region is entitled: "Do Latin-Americans Distrust Their Institutions?" and will take place on October 9 in The Goethe Institute Prague. It will be attended by Luis Almagro, Secretary General of the Organization of American States, former Bolivian President Jorge Quiroga Ramírez, and Peruvian writer and journalist Jaime Bayly.
