Promoting inclusive, accountable,
and representative democracies

The Oslo Center is an independent non-profit organization working in the fields of democratization and democratic governance. We promote and enhance democratic practices by strengthening political and government institutions. Through collaborative partnerships, we contribute to the development of democratic systems that are more responsive to citizen needs, respecting their meaningful and inclusive participation, human rights, and dignity.

On the occasion of President Biden’s Summit for Democracy, the Oslo Center and 47 democracy organizations from around the world came together into the Global Democracy Coalition Forum, convened by International IDEA. The Forum consisted of 41 webinars with conversations on elections, youth, disinformation, women’s political participation, corruption, democracy, and development, among many others. The aim of the Global Democracy Coalition Forum was to engage and facilitate the global conversations in the Summit for Democracy, which has led to the development of the Recommendations Report.
