Will democracy survive Covid-19?

Beskrivning

The Corona pandemic has hit democracy and civil rights hard in many parts of the world. The space for civil society organisations is even more limited. In Colombia violence against human rights defenders has increased, in Kenya police brutality has been used to enforce the restrictions and in Belarus the election has led to major protests and increased threats against civil society.
What role can Sweden and the government’s Drive for Democracy play to promote democracy and the space for civil society in these and other countries when societies are opening up again?
Participants:
Björn Hummerdal, Political advisor for Minister for International Development Cooperation Peter Eriksson
Ognjen Radonjic, Regional Manager, Eastern Europe, ForumCiv
Jackson Obare, Regional Manager, Eastern & Southern Africa, ForumCiv
Laura Juliana Bonilla Pinilla, Regional Manager, Latin America and Caribbean, ForumCiv
Moderator: Claudia Arenas, Head of Impact and quality assurance, ForumCiv
