Next Generation Democracy: Contribution to the drafting and dissemination of and the NGD Global Agenda
Next Generation Democracy (www.nextgenerationdemocracy.org) is a multi-stakeholder process led by the Club de Madrid, in partnership with International IDEA and Bertelsmann Stiftung. The overall aim of NGD is to better enable democracy to meet the expectations and needs of all citizens and preserve their freedom and dignity while securing a sustainable future for generations to come.
NGD facilitates a discussion on the state and future of democracy based on trends and projections in order to formulate both regional agendas and a global agenda to reverse disquieting trends and advance democracy worldwide.
The project progressively offers a comprehensive analysis of regional dynamics in democratic governance, a projection of relevant trends, and a compilation of transformative practices and transformative ideas to be discussed in a series of policy dialogues as well as through on-line exchanges.
NGD brings together in a direct and interactive manner expert assessments with the experienced perspectives of leading social, economic and political actors, including more than 100 Members of CdM, all of them democratically elected former Presidents and Prime Ministers from more than 60 countries.
The aim of the project is to help generate collective responses, rather than fragmented and independent actions, and shape consensus around shared, forward-looking, action-oriented agendas for improved democratic governance.
