These countries, which represent established and transitioning democracies from around the world, join a global forum for dialogue among governments that are committed to democratic norms and values.

Participating States

 

Participating States of the Community of Democracies are countries that demonstrate a consistent commitment to the democratic principles enshrined in the Warsaw Declaration.

The Governing Council invites more than 100 democratic states to participate in the Ministerial Conference that the Community holds every two years. States are selected through a deliberative process that includes input from civil society organizations represented by the International Steering Committee.

The outcome is an inclusive list of Participating States that represents the geographic and developmental diversity for which the Community has become known. These countries, which represent established and transitioning democracies from around the world, join a global forum for dialogue among governments that are committed to democratic norms and values.

The Community invited 130 states to participate and 12 states to observe the 2015 Ministerial Conference in El Salvador.

A new list will be drawn up before the 2017 Ministerial Conference in the United States.
