2021 Global Forum on Modern Direct Democracy


The Global Forum on Modern Direct Democracy is the largest gathering devoted to direct democracy worldwide. It favours a multidisciplinary approach, welcoming participants from academic, political and civil society perspectives. It is attended by activists, organisations and academics from all over the world. The goal is to bring together people with different experiences and backgrounds, so as to give activists and organisations the opportunity to share their insights and connect with others working on the same issues. Next April the Global Forum will be hosted by Bern, Switzerland.

Practical Info on the Global Forum can be found here.

“The Practice and Future of Unfinished Democracy”  

After  twelve years, the Global Forum on Modern Direct Democracy is returning to Switzerland! The City of Bern, together with the Swiss Democracy Foundation and Democracy International, is inviting you to a fascinating Global Forum week.

Join us for a briefing tour, during which we will experience first-hand how votes are organised in the world’s most advanced direct democracy. With these insights to inform our conversations, we will turn our attention to the practice and future of modern participatory and direct democracy, not just in Bern and Switzerland, but across the globe. And then, on the very last day, we will experience the cantonal assembly in the state of Glarus. Welcome to register now!

When? 28 April - 1 May 2021
Where? Bern, Switzerland
