Around the world, democracy is facing intense pressure to meet citizens’ needs for economic opportunity and social services. After free and fair elections are held to seat a government, the key to building successful democracies and lasting economic reforms is democratic governance, which comprises the traditions, institutions, and processes that determine how government decisions are made. This requires mechanisms of accountability and information sharing that build broad support among citizens and encourage active civic engagement.
Entries in this category will address the state of democratic governance, either globally or in a specific country. There are many different opinions on what constitutes democratic governance and what democracy delivers for average citizens.
Some questions to consider:
How do you view democratic governance in your country?
What are the factors affecting the quality of democratic governance?
Do you consider your country democratic?
What makes democracy work – or not work – in your country?
What do people expect from democracy?
What are the main barriers to achieving democratic governance?
How do authoritarian leaders undermine democratic institutions?
How do you hold public officials accountable besides voting them out of the office?
What role do civil society organizations play in your country?
Building entrepreneurial economies requires a number of steps, all well known: building market institutions; removing barriers to starting, operating, and growing a business; reforming educational systems; and creating a broader awareness and understanding of what entrepreneurship means as well as appreciation for its contribution to the development of democratic societies.
Entries in this category will look at different forms of entrepreneurship, the relationship between entrepreneurship and sustainable growth, rule of law, and a functioning democracy.
Some questions to consider:
What role does entrepreneurship play in creating an open marketplace?
How can small business owners work together to shape policy?
What are some political and economic challenges entrepreneurs face?
How do various people perceive entrepreneurship?
What limits entrepreneurship opportunities for women and youth in the developing world?
Youth are all too often excluded from political and economic policymaking, even though their engagement is vital in formulating effective public policy. Without access to venues for voicing their opinion, strikes and street protests become the only opportunity for young people to be heard. For progress and reform to take hold, young people must play an active role in advancing democratic and market-oriented reform.
Entries in this category will look at cultural, economic, and legal barriers to youth’s participation in society and ways to overcome them. Although youth populations constitute a large share of countries’ economic and social force, they are all too often excluded from full political, economic, and social participation.
Some questions to consider:
What are the fundamental economic, and political factors that make youth empowerment vital to political freedom and economic growth?
What is the role that youth play in society?
Which reforms could increase youth’s participation?
What are the outcomes of increased youth participation?
How can increased youth participation positively affect democratic and economic development?
