The World Movement for Democracy is a global network of civil society activists, scholars, parliamentarians, thought leaders, journalists, and funders who are committed to advancing democracy.
Since 1999, we have facilitated networking among democracy supporters and convened discussions and workshops on democracy in different regions of the world. We actively empower the democracy movements to engage in cross-regional solidarity, as well as share knowledge, support, and strategies with one another.
The World Movement for Democracy welcomes all those who contribute to – and benefit from –  communication with peers who face similar challenges while working to advance democracy. All networks, groups, and individuals who share the principles and values in our Founding Statement are welcome to join the World Movement for Democracy as participants.
