#Summit4DemocracyDialogues: Analyzing official statements and expectations on commitments

08 February 2022
15:00-15:30 (CET/Brussels) | 9:00-9:30 (Washington time)
Online (Twitter chat)

The International Institute for Democracy and Electoral Assistance (International IDEA) invites you to join the Twitter chat session #Summit4DemocracyDialogues: Analyzing official statements and expectations on commitments on Tuesday, 8 February 2022, at 15:00-15:30 (CET/Brussels). 

During the Summit for Democracy organized by the US government on 9 and 10 December 2021, a total of 98 out of 110 participating countries made an official statement with verbal commitments on democracy. The US government invited countries to submit written commitments by January 2022 to lay out their national contribution to safeguard and advance democracy. 
How are the official statements of the Summit assessed by stakeholders? What is the value of verbal commitments made at the Summit and what can we learn from them? What type of democracy actions are prioritized by the participating countries? And by EU Member States? What do civil society and other stakeholders expect from the written commitments? And how can stakeholders including civil society organize to contribute to monitoring implementation? 
To seek answers to these and other questions and discuss some key findings from International IDEA’s analysis of the official statements, the Institute organizes a Twitter chat on 8 February (15:00-15:30 CET), with support from the European Union. Please join us for a dynamic exchange of views! 


The Twitter chat marks the start of initiatives throughout the Year of Action 2022 to continue the global multi-stakeholder dialogue on the Summit for Democracy, organized in the framework of an EU-funded project entitled “Supporting Team Europe Democracy”.
