About the Event
After years of democratic backsliding, the Summit for Democracy is an opportunity to reaffirm and reinvent how democracy delivers. The Free Enterprise & Democracy Network is examining how open market economies and business contribute to democracy that delivers, through the lens of the three summit themes:
- Defending against authoritarianism
- Fighting corruption
- Promoting respect for human rights
Speakers comment on a FEDN priorities statement to be released in conjunction with the summit, as well discussing how commitments made during the summit can be implemented to meet the needs of emerging markets.
The Free Enterprise and Democracy Network (FEDN), founded by CIPE, provides a mechanism for private sector leaders and advocates of freedom across the world to exchange ideas, support one another, and make the case for democratic, prosperous societies. FEDN currently has more than 60 distinguished members from over 40 countries.
