Abstract

The Politics of Democratic Governance:

Organising for Social Inclusion and Gender Equity

was a two-day seminar organised by One World

Action in London in March 2007. The event brought

together activists at the forefront of democracy

building in Indonesia, Guatemala, Brazil, Thailand,

Nicaragua, Philippines, Malawi, India and Zambia

with policy-makers in the UK and Europe to focus on

how poor and marginalised people can have a voice

in the decisions that affect their lives. Participants

examined the challenges marginalised groups face in

organising, engaging with, and transforming political

processes. Looking at examples from a range of

international contexts, the presentations and

discussions considered the potential of new

strategies and forms of political engagement that

aim to build equitable, gender-sensitive, democratic

and accountable governance.
