Policy Conference
Supporting Democracy – How?
May 28, 2015

Presenting the Implications of the First V-Dem Results
15.5 Million Data from 168 countries, 1900-2012

Varieties of Democracy (V-Dem) Institute is organizing a conference to highlight policy-relevant implications of V-Dem research and data on democracy. We now have the first full set of data to provide answers to critical issues of democracy support, and the effects of democracy on issues of health, poverty, freedoms, and development.

We will share policy-relevant findings using the new, unique V-Dem data. About 20 brief 5-minutes presentations devoted to topics such as sequences of democratization leading to breakdown vs consolidation, if “early” elections is a good thing or not, effects of democratization on infant mortality, life expectancy, income inequality, macro-economic development, women’s representation and empowerment, and many other topics.

V-Dem’s matchless data on almost 400 indicators and indices of democracy across 168 countries covering 1900-2012 will be employed for the first time in these policy-targeted presentations. The conference features leading scholars on democratization and democracy from universities across continents such as University of Notre Dame, Boston University, Lund University, University of Gothenburg, Emory University, University of Florida, The Pontifical Catholic University of Chile, and many others.

We look forward to welcome a broad range of policy makers, practitioners, as well as representatives of international governmental and non-governmental organizations.

Time: 13.00-18.00
Venue: Vasaparken, Main Building, University of Gothenburg, Sweden
Organizer: V-Dem Institute, University of Gothenburg, Sweden
With Funding From: Riksbankens Jubileumsfond
