Administrator Samantha Power at USAID 2022 Democracy, Human Rights, and Governance Conference

June 24, 2022

So I think what happened out of the Summit for Democracies is President Biden launched an initiative for Democratic renewal, as you mentioned. And the idea here is, you know, of course, to try to recapture some of the momentum that democracy had a couple of decades ago really is probably the last time you could say it had full throttled momentum and to try to look at the toolkit that had developed over time. And I want to stress, you know, many of those tools are still incredibly valuable in deploying election monitors in advance of elections, of course, training independent media, training judiciary, trying to build the rule of law, which is, of course, is foundational for checks and balances and for democratic accountability.
