Detailed Program: Policy Dialogue Day 2017

March 22, 2017

We are pleased to extend an invitation to attend the Policy Dialogue Day 2017 “From Knowledge to Action: Current Insights on Democracy, Governance and Armed Conflict”, University of Gothenburg, Sweden, May 10th 2017.

This year’s Policy Dialogue Day is organized jointly by the V-Dem (Varieties of Democracy) Institute, the QoG (Quality of Government) Institute, GLD-Gothenburg (Program for Governance and Local Development) and UCDP (Uppsala Conflict Data Program). The Policy Dialogue Day seeks to bridge the gap between analysis and practice. It will cover topics related to the most recent findings in the areas of democracy, conflicts, corruption, and local governance. This annual Policy Day continues to serve as a dialogue platform for practitioners and policy-makers, and academics.

  • In addition, World Bank will launch ”World Development Report 2017: Governance and the Law”. The report answers on some fundamental questions as: why are carefully designed, sensible policies too often not adopted or implemented? When they are, why do they often fail to generate development outcomes such as security, growth, and equity?
  • V-Dem will launch the updated Dataset v7 "Largest Database on Democracy in History" and the Annual Report!
