Ever more countries are working to build plural democratic polities. For many building Democracy is synonymous with rebuilding their societies after protracted periods of conflict.
The Forum for Freedom and Democracy seeks to assist these countries by providing countries in transition with access to comparative experiences on democracy building and fostering partnerships to promote participation, accountability and effectiveness at all levels. Some of the key areas where we offer hands-on training and leadership roles are:
Election Observation, Empowering Women, Political Party Training, Constitution Building, Rule of Law, and Much More.
I am a Canadian, free to speak without fear, free to worship in my own way, free to stand for what I think right, free to oppose what I believe wrong, or free to choose those who shall govern my country. This heritage of freedom I pledge to uphold for myself and all mankind.
John Diefenbaker - From the Canadian Bill of Rights, June 30, 1956
