Democracies, new and mature alike, require active participation by the citizenry in order to thrive. This participation is only possible when citizens are educated about their rights and encouraged to exercise them by strong institutions.
The recently published Best Practices Manual on Democracy Education by the Council for a Community of Democracies provides a myriad of examples and case studies of democracy education programs for countries at all stages of development and transition.
The International Foundation for Electoral Systems (IFES) invites you to an event featuring two of the manual's authors as well as other democracy-promotion experts for a conversation on how best to empower citizens to become informed and take part in their government.
Featured Speakers:
Lee Arbetman, Executive Director, Street Law, Inc.

Augusta Featherston, Youth Adviser and Regional Program Officer, Europe and Asia, IFES

Matthew Hiebert, Curriculum Specialist

Romina Kasman, Coordinator, Inter-American Program on Education for Democratic Values and Practices, Organization of American States
The event will be moderated by Robert LaGamma, President, Council for a Community of Democracies.
Copies of the manual will be distributed at the event. Lunch will be served.

Global Expertise. Local Solutions. Sustainable Democracy.
