1) Objective

The World Forum for Democracy calls for expressions of interest from innovative initiatives, from all over the world, aiming at enhancing democracy and contributing to sustainable peace. These may be for example, but not limited to:

• Initiatives working towards depolarising elections, promoting non-divisive campaigning and different forms of collaborative democracy;
• Actions promoting unifying leadership and reconciliation in polarised societies;
• Alternative methods of making policy decisions, including, but not limited to, sortition, deliberative democracy, citizen panels, etc.
• Organised efforts to effectively keep social media companies and online platforms accountable for the content or polarising impact of their algorithms;
• Mechanisms for improving resilience to disinformation campaigns and manipulation, including tools to remove fake accounts from online platforms;
• Initiatives fighting corruption and “revolving door” policy, limiting the number of terms in office, or advocating the deprofessionalisation of politics;
• Platforms for candidate vetting;
• Innovative methods for fostering and sustaining meaningful civic engagement in politics (including that of young people, women or minorities);
