Is the crisis in democracy perception or reality?

 

There is a growing sense that democratic governments are not delivering, and that people's expectations are not being met. This is precisely why this year's Club de Madrid Policy Dialogue will focus on a discussion of the state and the future of democracy, marking the launch of the two-year, multi-stakeholder Club de Madrid-led Next Generation Democracy (NGD) Project.

Democracy and Human Rights in Decline? A Call for Action, co-organized by the Club de Madrid and the Robert F. Kennedy Center for Justice and Human Rights, will be held in Florence, Italy, on 24-25 November 2014. This year's Policy Dialogue will offer a unique opportunity to engage in a comprehensive analysis of regional dynamics and potential threats to democracy, with nearly 100 democratic former heads of state and government and a variety of political and social actors.
