The Bali Democracy Forum (BDF) was established in 2008 to create a progressive democratic architecture in the Asia-Pacific region. In the past decades, the Forum facilitated dialogues through sharing experiences and best practices in managing diversity that encourages equality, mutual understanding and respect.

Over the years, the BDF has succeeded in making democracy a strategic agenda in the Asia-Pacific. It has encouraged countries to establish a balance between economic and political development, between creating peace and security, and promoting human rights and fundamental freedom as well as respecting humanitarian values.

The 11th BDF 2018 addressed the theme “Democracy for Prosperity,” opening further discussions to pertinent issues such as economic justice, initiatives and innovations, equality, and sustainability.

Held for two days from 6 to 7 December 2018, this year’s forum was attended by more than 600 participants from 92 nations accross the globe.
