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. Read reflections from seven Symposium presenters for insight into both successes and lessons learned from their experiences with citizens’ movements in the Philippines, the United States, Kenya, Armenia, and others.
