Live webinar: Strengthening Southeast Asia’s democratic health after COVID-19

Organized by the Kofi Annan Foundation

According to the V-Dem Institute of Gothenburg University, some governments in Southeast Asia have experienced different levels and forms of democratic backsliding under the cover of pandemic-related emergency measures. Our panelists will present the regional situation and explore ways of restoring, and even invigorating, democracy in Southeast Asia as it emerges from the pandemic.
