New report from the Conference Series ”From Bullets to Ballots”
The Conference Series “From Bullets to Ballots” is organized by the Swedish Social Democratic Party together with the Olof Palme International Center.
It is a meeting ground for social democratic and progressive political parties, all of whom were once centralist liberation movements, now being in different stages of transition towards functioning democratic structures. It is an opportunity to discuss and share experiences, achievements and obstacles with each other. Starting in 2003 with the ANC of South Africa and the Fatah of Palestine, the conference has grown, in its sixth round, to include also the Frelimo of Mozambique, MPLA of Angola, Akbayan of the Philippines and this year’s host: the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK) of Iraqi Kurdistan.
