GlobalNet21 is planning to hold regular monthly webinars with decision makers - MPs, MEPs, and we hope Assemblymen and women, congressmen and senators from different countries. The topic of these webinars will be the state of democracy globally and what we need to do to recreate democracy to make it work for us all.
David Burrowes MP has agreed to take part in our third MP Focus webinar where he will be interviewed on the state of democracy in the UK and how it needs to change to reflect both local and global demands.
In this webinar David will focus on Human Rights and Justice. Are human rights closely associated with democratic societies and is it in those societies justice is more fairly administered. Or is this a fiction that we sometimes want to believe – that our state because it is democratic is thus more benign? Can states judge each other on human rights issues or is this best left to civil society globally?
Those attending the webinar will be able to ask questions by text and even start a debate by text.
We hope that these webinars will become a regular feature where we engage politicians of many countries about what democracy means in the 21st century and how politicians can connect with people and communities in a more effective way.
