AN ALLIANCE FOR A DEMOCRATIC WORLD ORDER
Authoritarian rule paves the way for war to erupt. “Deeply authoritarian regimes cannot live in benign co‐existence with liberal democracies,” Professor Larry Diamond explained. To confront these rulers who may look strong to outsiders, democracies and democrats will need to change their strategy. “Promoting an alliance of democratic societies will lead to a more proactive and cooperative approach in areas of our strategic challenges,” argued Czech President Petr Pavel.
“Democracy for us is a choice – both civilizational and existential – to break free, to preserve ourselves and our way of life”, highlighted President of Moldova, Maia Sandu. “We need to consolidate and work together closely like we did in the 1980s and 1990s, when there was a strong movement for democracies globally” added Alissa Wahid, Director of the Gusdurian Network from Indonesia.
STRONG DEMOCRACIES REVEAL THE WEAKNESSES OF AUTOCRACIES
For democracy to prevail and reverse the expansion of autocracies and their aggression, democratic countries need to be strong. As Ukraine simultaneously continues the hard work of reforming and strengthening its institutions, reconstructing infrastructure while Russia’s war in the country continues, world leaders can take inspiration from its example. Established democracies need to continue demonstrating a firm commitment to supporting democracy around the globe and confront authoritarianism more directly.
Ukrainians have demonstrated bravery and democratic resilience that should serve as a beacon for world leaders trying to spread a positive narrative about democracy. As Ivanna Klympush- Tsintsadze put it, democrats around the world must not give up their support for Ukraine because “we just know that in order to exist, in order to survive, in order to have a future, in order to have an opportunity to transform… we have to go on!”
