Regional Coalition of

Democracy Development

We Empower

DEMOCRACY
INNOVATORS,
THINKERS.

Why A

Coalition?

Our region is getting more dangerous. The geopolitical shifts of the Russian war have only begun and already the picture has changed dramatically.

But it’s important to remember that the threats to democracies have always existed — from the dissatisfied within and the non-democracies outside. Since the oligarchs of Ancient Athens conspiring with the autocrats of Sparta to demolish democratic rule — democracies have always been under attack. And so, they’ve always built coalitions to survive and thrive in these dangerous conditions. This is what we’re doing now. Again.

The democracies around the Baltic Sea and the Nordic region need to come together to hold strong against these dangers.

We Value

PUBLIC DISCUSSION

We believe that there will be no democratic innovation without an open and transparent public discussion in media, social media and at physical spaces and physical events.

EMPOWERING NONPROFITS

In a civil society, the innovation of democratic institutions should be spearheaded by citizens and nonprofits, who should be able to facilitate discussions based on research.

PHILOSOPHY & RESEARCH

Changes in the most important institutions of a democratic society should begin with the brightest minds and most sound philosophical thinking and quality research.

WE INVITE

YOU TO JOIN

Our coalition-building will begin in the beginning of 2023. Center for Developing Democracy coordinates the new Coalition.

RESEARCHERS

We invite both individual researchers (and philosophers) and academic institutions to join and get their research applied.

NONPROFITS

The initiation of public discussion and leading of the application of ideas from research will be spearheaded by nonprofits.

ALL OTHERS

There are many other people and organizations working on democracy development - and they are all welcome to join!
