Please join us and listen to the Ambassador of Sweden, Her Excellency, Ingrid Wetterqvist in Liberia speech on the Embassy of Sweden work and strategy in advancing the Swedish Global Drive for Democracy on Thursday, August 27, 2020 at 11:00 am via ZOOM.
Sweden has long been at the forefront of promoting, protecting and safeguarding democracy throughout the world. One of the great achievements of the 20th century was the spread of democracy and economic development on a global scale. Democracy has proven to be the best form of governance. It delivers economic and social gains as well as peace and stability. It enables voices to be heard, encourages participation, and allows for conflicts in society to be solved through peaceful means. Democratic societies stand stronger in an ever-changing world. Yet democracy requires continuous attention and engagement.
The Democracy Lecture Forum is a platform created by an Alumnus (Eddie D. Jarwolo) of the prestigious Reagan-Fascell Democracy Fellows Program held twice-monthly with diverse young people to inspire them to be committed to the principles of democracy, understand their roles and responsibilities in a democratic society – a sure hope to help them grow and adhere to democratic values, norms and ideas for the common good of their respective countries when they excel to leadership positions.
