07. September, 2023

The international conference PARTNERSHIPS FOR DEMOCRACY, DEVELOPMENT AND PEACE will take place on September 12, 2023 in Riga, Latvia within the Latvian Presidency of Council of Europe. Around 100 CSO activists, public administration representatives, including from Council of Europe structures, academia and media people will meet in the international conference.

Regional geopolitics and aggressive invasion of Russia in Ukraine have reshaped the European agenda of democracy putting in the center of the development the urge for the peace. In the recent years the societies themselves have become visible and active actors for transformational change at all levels, have proved the ability to respond with responsibility and solidarity.

This conference puts forward the substantial questions of the changing nature of the partnerships among governments, multilateral institutions and NGOs, and also the within the sector itself - examining the role of the local level civic activism and its regional and global level impact.

Participants of the event will shape the agenda by their own stories of the best and challenging examples, discuss the different perspectives and proposals for improvement. Politicians, civil servants, academia, NGOs and civic activists are invited to participate, learn and share.

Programme of the conference is available here. The conference will be held in English.
