The final report!

On November 15 the 31 conference participants presented a preliminary conference report. Now two months later I am happy and very proud presenting to you the final conference report. What could better represent this happy occasion, which lends great hope for the future, if not the words from the 31 authors found in the report’s Conclusion.

“The 9 proposals presented in this report offer a range of different – yet interconnected – policies that contribute towards building an Open Society. As an antidote to the many challenges that we currently face as a society, we recommend a mix of: more democracy; extended and deepened accountability networks; and inclusivity of marginalised groups and voices. These three ideas powered every proposal made, and must do so with the ones to come.”
