Announcing the World Movement 10th Global Assembly!

April 1, 2021

Our 10th Global Assembly is underway!  Starting April and until July, the World Movement will hold a series of discussions with the theme “Towards Successful Transitions: New Opportunities and Emerging Challenges.” Although the COVID-19 pandemic made it impossible to organize in-person gatherings as we had in the past, it did also give us an exciting opportunity to reimagine our Global Assembly. This year’s Assembly includes:

  • 6 national-level discussions in countries, such as Mali, Sudan, Tunisia, Ukraine (April – June)
  • 6 regional virtual dialogues in Africa, Asia, Eurasia, Europe, Latin America/Caribbean, Middle East/North Africa (April – June)
  • A virtual Global Exchange (July 7 & 8, 2021)

Global Assemblies gather civil society activists, scholars, parliamentarians, thought leaders, journalists, and funders to discuss how we can help democracies thrive and grow. As they have since 1999, our Assemblies allow attendees to exchange practical knowledge and innovative approaches that they can use in their work, network with colleagues, and learn from each other.

The Global Assembly meetings are invitation-only events. However, the Global Exchange will be streamed on Facebook, so keep an eye on our Facebook page to see those discussions!
