Policy Dialogue Day 2017


Policy Dialogue Day 2017 “From Knowledge to Action: Current Insights on Democracy, Governance and Armed Conflict” in Gothenburg, Sweden, May 10th, 2017.

This year’s Policy Dialogue Day is organized jointly by the V-Dem (Varieties of Democracy) Institute, the QoG (Quality of Government) Institute, GLD-Gothenburg (Program for Governance and Local Development) and UCDP (Uppsala Conflict Data Program). The Policy Dialogue Day seeks to bridge the gap between analysis and practice. It will cover topics related to the most recent findings in the areas of democracy, conflicts, corruption, and local governance. This annual Policy Day continues to serve as a dialogue platform for practitioners and policy-makers, and academics.

What are most important global changes in democracy, conflict and governance today, and what are their implications for promoting human development? Is democracy in decline? If so, as we believe, in which areas are the most common declines? What do the latest findings say about current trends in armed conflicts? How has the nature and scope of conflict changed, and can we still expect that democratic institutions can help prevent it? Is corruption a source of “bad democracy” or the other way around, an outcome? Can you have “good government” without democracy? And how important is the state to human development outcomes? Has the state and democracy lost its meaning for citizens today? How do we best promote democracy, human rights, quality of government, and peace in today's changing environment?
