Democratic leadership on the history of democracy - have your say!

HMB
Democracy is a form of government in which power comes from the people. Nevertheless, not everyone in a community has ever been allowed to vote or take part in elections. Who was allowed to have a say and when, who was left out and what challenges do we face today?

The tour explores these questions on the occasion of International Democracy Day. The audience is democratically involved and can have a say in how the tour continues.
