Reviving Democratic Commitments: Strengthening Citizenship and Institutions in South Korea

October 10, 2018
Initiative Activity

Citizens’ movements remain integral elements of democracy — they have birthed democratic transitions, shepherded governance reforms, and bolstered democratic consolidation. To discuss the varying degrees of success that different movements have achieved and to explore how democrats can capitalize on the momentum popular movements offer, the World Movement and the Korea Foundation convened an international symposium on September 13, 2018.

Take a look at the #SeoulSymposium hashtag on Twitter to learn more about the discussions held at the meeting, and stay tuned for upcoming blogs by participants that will offer insight into both successes and lessons learned from their experiences with citizens’ movements.
