International Day of Democracy

The International Day of Democracy was established by the United Nations in 2007 and first celebrated in 2008. It is held on 15 September to mark when a Universal Declaration on Democracy affirming the principles of democracy, the elements and exercise of democratic government, was adopted by the Inter-Parliamentary Union, a world organisation of parliaments, in September 1997.

Mr Schulz said: “Dialogue and inclusiveness are the key ingredients of a political culture based on tolerance and mutual respect. Dialogue between different political forces and dialogue between politicians and citizens are essential in finding effective solutions.”
