The Addis Ababa launch of the GSoD 2019 Report seeks to present the key findings of the report and discuss its policy relevance with policymakers from the African bilateral donor community, the youth representatives, civil society organizations and opinion-makers, to identify common solutions.
The report aims to inform the global democracy debate with evidence and data and provide a nuanced analysis of how opportunities and challenges to democracy play out in different ways around the world, shaped by regional and country contexts. Beyond the diagnostic and in order to help rebalance the current democracy debate, the report also seeks to provide policy recommendations, building on the good practices and cases which have shown resilience in the face of challenges. These have been collected through International IDEA’s more than 20 years of regional and country-level technical assistance in democratic reform throughout the world.
The report mainly targets policymakers and civil society organizations working at the national, regional or international levels, either implementing, supporting or advocating for democratic reforms. The report also targets those policymakers who may not be working directly on democratic reform but are involved in reform processes more broadly, be they economic, social or digital.
