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