On the occasion of the international democracy day, there are several institutions that put together an interesting program in Geneva: http://graduateinstitute.ch/files/live/sites/iheid/files/sites/hirschman-centre-on-democracy/events/2017/Programme-web.2017.07.04.pdf
La Journée internationale de la démocratie fête cette année son
20ème anniversaire. Instituée par l’ONU, elle a lieu, chaque
année, le 15 septembre. Célébrée dans plus de 100 pays, elle
vise à « réexaminer l’état de la démocratie dans le monde ».
A cette occasion, la chancellerie d’Etat du canton de Genève
organise la 3ème édition de la Semaine de la démocratie qui
a pour objectif de mettre en lumière l’importance des outils
démocratiques et de donner une meilleure visibilité à nos
institutions, de manière scientifique, festive et ludique.
welcome to the new issue of the DeLoG newsletter with the latest
activities and news of the network, upcoming events as well as courses

Dear DDLG members
During the next 12 months the
CHR and DDLG networks will engage on a joint learning journey on ‘Governance in fragile contexts’ and all you need to know you find on the
journey's web page.
Capitalize on experience from DDLG programs in fragile contexts through collaborative learning and knowledge sharing and establish a shared understanding of different approaches and guidance on the planning, implementing and monitoring of DDLG programs in fragile contexts.
With the support of IDS, we will closely work together with the cooperation offices of Afghanistan, Burundi, Honduras, Egypt, Mali, and Ukraine to capitalize on their experiences and learning.
While this will be an important part of the journey, we are dependent
on the additional sharing of experiences of the other cooperation offices as well as our partners.
You can do this via the newsblog or contact us directly.
Thank you in advance!
We are happy if you aliment the Shareweb page as much as we do and are looking forward to an interesting year!
Warm regards, the DDLG team
