Approximately every two years, we bring together hundreds of democracy and human rights activists at a global assembly to discuss the significant challenges they face advancing democracy in their countries and the ways they are addressing those challenges.

Global assemblies offer World Movement participants the opportunity to take stock of the accomplishments they have made and the challenges they confront, and to build networks of mutual solidarity and support across borders.

Our assemblies feature a wide variety of workshops and panel discussions, and give activists the rare opportunity to meet face-to-face and connect with activists in different regions.

We also present our Democracy Courage Tributes to groups and movements that have demonstrated extraordinary courage in their work.
