This Paper was developed as a follow-up to the Democracy in Asia and the Pacific 2023 Outlook Forum held in December 2022. The forum was jointly organized by International IDEA and Perludem in Bali, Indonesia.
We would like to thank the many people whose insights and conversations helped with the conceptualization of this Discussion Paper. In particular, we thank the interviewees and participants who attended the forum and provided invaluable written and spoken contributions. We hope this Paper will serve to set the agenda for stakeholders’ strategic planning and inspire work on democracy reforms related to Asia and the Pacific as a priority in 2023.
