Driving Democracy from Within

Democracy cannot be exported, imported or introduced by force. Democracy has to develop from the inside and defined in the particular context of the country of region in question. But can the international community in a meaningful way support these processes?

Geraldine Fraser-Moleketi, UNDPs Governance Practice Director and Liv Tørres, the Norwegian Council for Africa’s Advisory Board in dialogue.
