Roundtable on Democracy Promotion

Director: Joe Siegle
May 1, 2001 - June 30, 2004

The Democracy Promotion Roundtable is a monthly series of seminars examining various topical issues facing the democracy promotion community. The sessions aim to advance the policy debate on economic, political, and bureaucratic constraints to the current wave of democratization - affecting some 90 countries around the world. With this aim in mind, the roundtables serve as a forum to bring policy practitioners, non-governmental democracy promotion agencies, academics, think-tanks, and advocacy professionals together to discuss emerging policy issues involving democratization - ideas that are vetted by the collective experience of the participants. Sessions normally involve 2-3 panelists, each presenting for approximately 10-15 minutes on a selected theme. The remainder of the 90 minute sessions are opened for questions and broader dialogue. Some of the panelists that have participated in these sessions include William Easterly, Carl Gersham, Harold Koh, Paula Dobriansky, and George Folsom, among others.
