Global Democracy 2005 (G05)
In light of the shifting trends in global governance, what are civil society's proposals to build a more democratically governed world? What visions and strategies can civil society, diverse in its interests but potentially united in its actions, propose as means of attaining global democracy?
The Montreal International Forum (FIM) organized an international conference to discuss about these issues. Global Democracy 2005 (G05) entitled: “Global Democracy: Civil Society Visions and Strategies” took place from May 29th to June 1st, 2005 in Montréal, Canada. Participants from civil society organizations together with representatives of governments, private entities, and intergovernmental organizations shared civil society perspectives on the key issues that determine the state of global democracy. They discussed how to democratize the international system of governance and developed proposals to tackle the democratic deficit plaguing global governance.
