About the event
It is difficult to achieve and maintain a stable democratic government within a pluralist society without equal political participation of all components, Political involvement and pluralism are mandatory platforms for a stable democracy in which all components, especially minority rights, are protected. Recognizing political and cultural pluralism means respecting the principles of democracy and ensuring that everyone in society can express himself and benefit from the same rights as the majority.
This round table, entitled Diversity and Political Participation:
- Highlighting the difficulties faced by the components in political participation? How can the involvement of constituencies, particularly minorities, be enabled within political frameworks?
- What is the specific contribution of policy frameworks to enhancing involvement in decision-making?
- The plurality of political parties is noticeable in Syria in general and northeastern Syria in particular; what are the positive and negative effects of multilateralism?
- Can we consider the issue of the common destiny of the geographical region as a positive common point towards recognition of pluralism and recognition of diversity, and how?
- How can we promote participation and inclusion in political parties, and activation of the role of political activists in the region without regard to their color, gender, ethnicity, and nationality...?
