Miami Conference on Global Democracy

This is a past event.

Monday, March 6 at 9:00am to 3:30pm

GC - Graham University Center, GC Ballrooms
11200 SW 8th ST, Graham University Center, Miami, Florida 33199

This event is free and open to the public.

Join the conversation as we explore the phenomenon of contemporary democratic backsliding on a global scale.  Guest speakers and expert panels will explore how waning public support for democracy, economic inequality and social tensions, populist politics, external pressures from great power competition, and the weakening of political institutions and processes have all contributed to a steady decline in democracy worldwide. What lessons can we draw to strengthen democracy across the globe?

Sponsored by the Dorothea Green Lecture Series

Co-sponsored by Václav Havel Program for Human Rights & Democracy

Statement of Free Expression

FIU endorses the Florida Board of Governors' Statement of Free Expression to support and encourage full and open discourse and the robust exchange of ideas and perspectives on our campuses. In addition to supporting this legal right, we view this as an integral part of our ability to deliver a high-quality academic experience for our students, engage in meaningful and productive research, and provide valuable public service. This includes fostering civil and open dialogue in support of critical thinking in and out of the classroom, including events hosted by the university.
