Asia GDC Forum

The Asia GDC Forum, took place in Seoul, Republic of Korea at the East Asia Institute, both in person and streamed live. It epitomized the commitment to democratic values within the Asian context. In collaboration with our esteemed GDC partner, Alliance for Vietnam´s Democracy, this forum was a cornerstone event in the Asian democratic landscape.

On 14 March 2024, the Asia GDC Forum emerged as a pivotal platform in the lead-up to the Summit for Democracy in South Korea. It provided a dedicated platform for Asian voices to engage in dialogue and exchange perspectives on democracy. Participants delved into regional perspectives on democracy, explored opportunities, challenges, and future directions for democratic governance in Asia. The forum’s agenda was multifaceted, and aimed to facilitate discussions among Asian democracy organizations, policymakers, and advocates while also examining the broader global context.

With the Asia GDC Forum, attendees had the opportunity to contribute to the ongoing conversation about the state of democracy in Asia, identify common challenges and opportunities, and chart a course for advocating democratic values within the region and beyond.
