The international Forum offered all attendees from around the world a space where they can share ideas and jointly assess the issues of sovereignty and representation. Through discussion and experience sharing, the main theme of this year “Regional and local representation for a true global democracy” was expected, not based on a view of the academic theory on institutional principles, to investigate how the legislative Assemblies reinterpret those principles today in the service of their communities.
