INVITATION

International IDEA
EU Launch of the Global State of Democracy publication
Presentation and High-Level Panel Discussion
Thursday, 30 November 2017, 13:15 – 15:30
Venue: Egmont Palace, Place du Petit Sablon 8bis, 1000 Brussels
Programme: Attached

Globally, democracy is at a crossroads. International IDEA’s Global State of Democracy publication
assesses the state of democracy worldwide, with the aim of providing evidence-based analysis and
actionable recommendations for current threats and challenges to democracy.
The publication’s first edition focuses on ‘Exploring Democracy’s Resilience’ and analyses a set of key
challenges to democracy and the enabling conditions for its resilience. In addition, accompanying the
launch of the publication is the new Global State of Democracy (GSoD) indices, the evidence base for
the publication. The GSoD indices are built on an elaborate conceptual framework, based on a broad
range of attributes and sub-attributes of democracy and rooted in International IDEA’s wellestablished State of Democracy (SoD) framework, and cover 155 independent countries for the
period 1975–2015.
On the occasion of the launch of the first edition of International IDEA’s publication, “The Global
State of Democracy”, the Office of International IDEA to the EU is organizing, in collaboration with
the Federal Public Service for Foreign Affairs, Foreign Trade and Development Cooperation of the
Kingdom of Belgium, a presentation and high-level panel discussion. The objective of the event is to
formally launch and present the findings of the publication, as well as to discuss the State of
Democracy in the European Union.
The Office of International IDEA would like to invite you to the official launch event, taking place
on Thursday, 30 November 2017, 13:15 – 15:30 at the Egmont Palace, Place du Petit Sablon 8bis,
1000 Brussels. RSVP before 28 November 2017, via the following link: https://goo.gl/yZiZLd
Participants will be required to present a passport or ID card upon arrival.

democracy worldwide. International IDEA’s mission is to support sustainable democratic change by providing comparative knowledge, and assisting in
democratic reform, and influencing policies and politics. In addressing our mission, we focus on the ability of democratic institutions to deliver a
