Accountability Lab (summit4democracy.org) and International IDEA (summitfordemocracyresources.eu) are co-hosting a Twitter Chat to discuss preliminary findings on the Summit for Democracy’s country commitments on Monday, 4 April 2022, 9-10am EDT/3-4pm CEST, with support from the European Union. The event is organized in collaboration with the Global Democracy Coalition’s webinar on post-Summit reflections taking place the next day (registrations are open here) and provides an opportunity for our Twitter audiences to feed into its discussions.
A total of 110 countries participated in the Summit for Democracy organized by the US government on 9 and 10 December 2021. As a follow-up, and to start the Year of Action (YoA) 2022, the US government invited countries to submit written commitments, to detail their national contribution to safeguard and advance democracy globally.
By early March 2022, 50 countries had made their written commitments available on the United States State Department website. Various stakeholders to the Summit are analyzing these commitments in view of defining their positions and actions as a contribution to the ToA.
Join us on April 4th for a discussion about how CSOs and citizens can ensure that their governments become more democratic and translate commitments into action. Tell us which commitments you believe S4D participating countries should focus on and how we can best track the progress towards these commitments.
