Deadline

The 2017 World Forum for Democracy will focus on the role of political parties and media in the context of rising populism. A growing disconnect between citizens and political elites and dramatic changes in the media ecosystem are a challenge for democracy as we know it. New political and media actors and practices are emerging, offering opportunities for direct, unmediated engagement of the public, unbound by ethical or institutional safeguards. How can pluralism, freedom of expression, and fair and evidence-based public debate be safeguarded in these new conditions? How to nourish political culture which embraces a long-term perspective and resists the excesses of populism?

Young people, aged 16-30, from all over the world are invited to apply until 11 July (at CET 13.00/1p.m.) to participate in the World Forum for Democracy 2017!

60 young participants will be selected by the Youth Department of the Council of Europe in order to ensure a strong youth participation during the Forum.
