2 This conference brings together experts, academics, civil society representatives and diplomats from different countries of the European Union and the Black Sea region, including the Caucasus, to look at the state of play on democratic culture and governance in the area. Topics will be reviewed to assess the quality of governance and democracy such as media pluralism, political participation (youth, women), parliaments and government, the rule of law and predictability, checks and balances, reform of the judiciary, democratic control of the security forces and local democracy. The conference serves as a basis for a continuation of the project viz. a book and follow-up conference.
