The WSF Democracy Network is designed to support Casimir PulaskiFoundation’s partners to reach out and inform a broader audience of policy-makers, opinion-shapers, scholars and community leaders about the importance of upholding democratic principles in security policy – particularly in times of security crisis.

Twenty representatives of the civil society from Belarus, Czechia, Estonia, Georgia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Russia, Slovakia and Ukraine initiated the project designed to amplify the voice of organizations fighting for the integrity of the democratic process.

The four priorities set before the Network are:

– to gather like-minded individuals involved in democracy-building and democracy-strengthening projects;
– to share and explore ongoing projects related to strengthening regional democratic resilience;
– to brainstorm and possibly contribute to joint collaborative projects with international organizations;
– to influence the Warsaw Security Forum’s 2022 agenda on democracy-related issues.

The network has been established with the support of the National Endowment for Democracy (USA).
