Post-Summit Reflections – Analysis of Written Country Commitments
On 5 April 2022, at 9am EST/3pm CET, International IDEA will convene under the Global Democracy Coalition initiative an online panel discussion of the written Summit commitments submitted by countries to strengthen and protect democracy at home and abroad. The discussion will aim to: 1) provide an overview of the commitments made, identifying focus areas, domestic versus international commitments, clusters of countries that have made similar commitments, their level of specificity and type of commitments both overall and on specific focus areas (open government and LGBTQI rights); 2) identification of commitments gaps and alignment against democratic performance indicators; and 3) identify possible next steps in commitment refinement, monitoring and implementation.
The discussion is aimed to inform commitment refinement and monitoring activities during the Year of Action.
The panel will feature:
- Annika Silva-Leander, Head of North America Progamme at International IDEA
- Renzo Falla, Senior Research Officer at the Open Government Partnership
- Mark Bromley, Co-Chair of Council for Global Equality
- Laura Thronton, Director and Senior Fellow at the Alliance for Securing Democracy, German Marshall Fund
