International Day of Democracy

The International Day of Democracy is observed each year on September 15 to review the state of democracy in the world. It was established in 2007 through a UNGA resolution called “Support by United Nations system of efforts of governments to promote and consolidate a new or restored democracies”. Qatar spearheaded the efforts towards the global day’s establishment.
The theme for this year is “strengthening democratic resilience in the face of future crises”. Despite the growing popularity of democracy over the years, it still remains unrealized or limited at the global scale. To achieve the ideal democracy, the full participation of the international community is paramount and the day seeks to promote the same.
