Join Posner Center partner, the Korbel School of International Studies, for the Denver Democracy Summit. The Denver Democracy Summit is an annual event and part of a multi-year Democracy Initiative at the Korbel School that integrates public engagement, research and educational activities on issues of democratic governance. The Summit connects a range of citizens’ democracy efforts by bringing together leaders and thinkers from politics, business, and civil society with diverse identities and viewpoints from across the political spectrum along with scholars and students from around the world. Through engagement and dialogue, we seek to examine the quality of democracy in the U.S. and abroad and inspire a new generation of civically minded and engaged citizens.
