Launch: Democracy Lighthouse

Democracy Lighthouse, a new initiative from the Toda Peace Institute, was launched on 31 May 2024.

The online platform is the result of collaboration between Toda Peace Institute and the University of Sydney. It aims to be an independent beacon and distributor of information on the renewal of democracy around the globe.

Toda Peace Institute Director, Professor Kevin P. Clements, says the website is being launched during a period of mounting global anxiety and widespread political unrest about democracy’s future.

“This platform is perhaps the world’s first comprehensive depository of information about the hundreds of organisations and networks engaged in reimagining, advocating and researching the past, present and future of democracy.”

Currently the platform has more than 200 organisations listed and is actively encouraging other organisations to list their details.
