Shared Values and Democracy in Asia
Political, spiritual, and academic leaders convene for the next step in continuing dialogue
At a time when many Asian countries are embracing democracy, what are the factors behind the growth and development of democracy in this region?
Asia is home to many diverse ideologies and religions, all of which are firmly embedded in their respective regions. In a society of such rich diversity, what are shared universal, fundamental ideologies and values that transcend existing frameworks?
At this symposium, political leaders and researchers from the Asian region will conduct multi-faceted discussions on themes such as the democratization experiences of their own countries and regions, the values that underpin democracy, and the universal nature of those values.
