Join this external event by USIP on a conversation with civil-society leaders from five democracies that are affected by diverse and challenging conflicts: Colombia, Iraq, Nigeria, the Philippines and Ukraine.
The discussion will examine the prospects for democracy and peace in these countries, how the goals of greater democracy and greater peace are linked, what lessons the leaders learned in joining together democracy and peace, and how the international democratic community can better support their efforts.
