The Bali Democracy Forum (BDF) was first inaugurated in 2008 as an avenue to push for a more progressive and robust democratic architecture in the Asia-Pacific region. Since its inception, the event has facilitated dialogues and the sharing of experiences and best practices in managing diverse perspectives in a democratic environment - while upholding the principles of equality, mutual understanding and respect.
Since 2017, the BDF has developed further through the involvement of students in the Bali Democracy Students Conference (BDSC). The aim of the BDSC is to encourage the transfer of values of democracy to and among the younger generation. The BDSC provides an opportunity for the exchange of views, ideas, experiences and best practices among students. It also provides an avenue to engage with and absorb views and input from government officials and civil societies.
For the past 4 years, BDSC consistently presents thematic areas of concerns on the issue of democracy that engages youth from over 60 countries into problem-solving dialogues. The success of BDSC is demonstrated through the increasing number of participants by years, from 150 students in 2017 to 238 participants in 2020. The 4th BDSC discussed the theme of "Democracy, Youth and COVID-19". Over 150 students, consisting of Indonesian and foreign students from universities in Indonesia and abroad, are expected to participate in the Conference.
Now in its 5th year, the BDSC has established itself as the must-attend Student Conference on Democracy in the Asia-Pacific.
The 5th BDSC is to be conducted in a hybrid format on 19 November 2021, as a preliminary event leading up to the 14th BDF that will be held on 9 December 2021.
