International IDEA held a public seminar on 26 April 2017 to discuss forward-looking answers to following pertinent questions of our time:
- Is the future of democracy more participatory? If so, what does this mean for traditional political parties, and how can they capitalize on these opportunities to empower their members and voters?
- How are governments strengthening participatory mechanisms to make them more accessible and citizen-friendly?
- How can new political leaders use these mechanisms to enrich rather than to undermine democratic values and representative institutions?
