Global Forum on Modern Direct Democracy
Cologne, Germany

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.

This website is dedicated to those active on issues of direct democracy, participation and citizens' rights around the world. Countless people and organisations around the world work daily to make the way we make decisions more inclusive and to improve the societies we live in.

Through our work with these activists and experts throughout the world it became clear to us that what many of us needed was a global network, linking up all of the people working towards a world in which citizens have the final say. We wanted to connect the democracy rights protester in Tunisia with the citizens’ rights expert in Uruguay. We wanted to help the city official launching a participatory budgeting project in France benefit from the experience of his counterpart in Mexico, and put the local activist trying to improve her neighbourhood in Australia in touch with the organisers of a citizens’ initiative one town over.

On the International Democracy Community, you can make a profile to present your work or that of your organisation, you can share events you are organising and perhaps most importantly you can share your experiences and learn from those of others. We want this platform to become the digital emanation of the vibrant and inspiring network we have witnessed in real life, sharing our work with each other and the world.
