Are you already busy preparing for Christmas and getting last things done before this year ends? Frankly, I am, yet nevertheless I wish to notify you about our next upcoming event: The Global Forum on Modern Direct Democracy will take place in Tunis, Tunisia from 14-17 May 2015.

We very much hope you will join us to discuss latest trends and findings regarding Active Citizenship and Participative Democracy with people from all over the world. Given the location, Tunis, our special focus will lie on democracy in Tunisia, the country where the “Arabellion” started four years ago. Come and meet with us the courageous Tunisian people who successfully fought for their democratic rights and citizen participation.

Book your accommodation now: We guarantee reasonable prices for a hotel room if you book by 14 December 2014. Here you find all information about the event and on how to make the early-bird-reservation. Act quickly – the early bird catches the worm ;-)

Wishing you a good Christmas time,

All the best,
Cora Pfafferott
