Supporting Democracy – Think7 Summit

The session discusses the interrelation between inequality and democracy. It will highlight how inequality affects democratic processes and how G7 members can support democracy in a way that minimizes this threat. The sessions aim is twofold: On the one hand, it analyses why so many citizens in G7 countries are frustrated with democratic institutions and which role inequality plays in this regard. On the other hand, it aims to unpack how the nexus of democracy and inequality affects countries in the Global South and how the policies and politics of G7 member states can be impactful in these contexts.
