2022 Denver Democracy Summit

Confronting Democracy's Dilemmas

February 10 - 11

DDS 2022

Please join the Josef Korbel School of International Studies at the second-annual Denver Democracy Summit, to be hosted at the University of Denver and streamed virtually worldwide. The Denver Democracy Summit is a nonpartisan gathering of citizens, leaders, media and thinkers in government, nonprofit, business and academia, dedicated to protecting and promoting democratic ideals.

The 2022 Summit will explore Democratic Dilemmas: the tensions inherent to democratic institutions and ideals that have led to some of the most vexing challenges we face today, including the impacts of misinformation and polarization on open exchange; the capacity of democratic institutions to tackle the problems posed by climate change; and the ongoing debate of how to best guarantee free and fair elections.

The 2022 Summit will once again be held in partnership with the Alliance of Democracies Foundation and as a complement to the Copenhagen Democracy Summit, a high-level strategic forum organized by the Alliance of Democracies Foundation each summer.

Registration information forthcoming.
