21st Annual Forum 2000 Conference
8 October - 10 October
Dear Sir or Madam,
We are pleased to inform you about the upcoming 21st annual Forum 2000 Conference titled “Strengthening Democracy in Uncertain Times“ which will be held October 8–10, 2017 in Prague and other Central European cities.
The democratic world seems to be at a crossroads. Trust in institutions is declining. Belief in democracy is weakening. Democratic processes around the world suddenly – and quite paradoxically – seem to be turning against the very foundations of democracy. Traditional liberal ideas are losing confidence in the competitive global ideological environment. Has democracy, as we know it, expired? Is it in transition? Towards what? Are we facing a systemic change? Has democracy become distorted, is it out of control? Has it not been able to reflect the changes in society and technological developments?
Among the distinguished guests from around the world will be former Austrian President Heinz Fischer, Albert II, Prince of Monaco, women’s rights activist from Saudi Arabia Manal Al-Sharif or professor of Islamic and Interreligious StudiesMona Siddiqui.
Registration opens on August 1, 2017 and is only possible on-line.
We look forward to seeing you.
Forum 2000 Foundation
