Democracy Talks

The Drive for Democracy is a key focus area for the Swedish Government. The initiative aims to provide support to the institutions, processes and defenders of democracy, while also responding to the growing threats and challenges facing democracy today.

As a part of this drive, Sweden co-organises local ‘Democracy Talks’ with partners all over the world. The purpose of these talks is to highlight the state of democracy globally and locally and create engagement in conversations about democracy. The ideas will feed into a Democracy Talk in Stockholm in 2021.
