Copenhagen Democracy Summit 2022

We are delighted to be hosting the next Copenhagen Democracy Summit on 9-10 June 2022. Uniting democratic forces to push back on the authoritarian tide was our ambition when we inaugurated the Copenhagen Democracy Summit series five years ago with Joe Biden as our inaugural keynote speaker.

Today, as we see with Russia's invasion of Ukraine, front-line figures in the battle for freedom and democracy matter more than ever. We will provide a platform for such voices globally. We urgently need to unite political, business and media leaders, democracy activists and advocates, to bring fresh ideas to stem the authoritarian advance and put democracy back on the front foot.

Thursday will be dedicated to technology and democracy including our Democracy and Tech Entrepreneur Fellowship. Friday will focus on how to defend Ukraine, counter authoritarian powers, and build an alliance of democracies.

Among many powerful speakers, will be joined by the Lithuanian Prime Minister, a country that has bravely stood up to authoritarian bullying from Russia, Belarus, and China.

The Copenhagen Democracy Summit in Review

Hear the story of the Copenhagen Democracy Summit from our Founder, Anders Fogh Rasmussen. Today, as we see with Russia's invasion of Ukraine, gathering front-line figures in the battle for freedom and democracy is vital. In this video we reflect on why our work is important, now more than ever.

We look forward to welcoming you to the next edition on June 9-10th, in-person.
