CDI Joins Asian Democracy Foundations Meeting
CDI Director Ben Reilly is a speaker at the inaugural Seoul Democracy Forum on September 9-11. The Forum, an initiative of the Korea Democracy Foundation (KDF) and the US National Endowment for Democracy (NED), brings together democracy practitioners and leader from across Asia to share their experiences.
The KDF and NED are two of CDI's partner organisations, and work together on a number of democracy promotion projects and research initiatives in Asia.
As part of the Forum, Professor Reilly will also participate in the Democratic Assistance Foundation Meeting for democracy promotion institutions from across the Asia-Pacific region. The meeting discusses the role of democratic assistance foundations in promoting democracy in Asia, as part of a functional discourse on Asia's collective efforts to help democratic consolidation in the region.
