"The first World Forum on Democracy took place June 25-27, 2000, in Warsaw, Poland. The World Forum, sponsored by Freedom House and the Stefan Batory Foundation, was inspired by a shared viewpoint that the private sector and civil society are essential elements in achieving and maintaining the extraordinary democratic gains of the last 25 years. The World Forum gathered democracy leaders and activists, academic experts, leaders of civic and religious organizations, representatives of the business community, labor, NGOs and the media to discuss the continued advancement of democratic governance and values throughout the world. Among those who attended are Madeleine Albright, Adam Michnik, George Soros, Jose Ramos-Horta, Michel Rocard, Francis Fukuyama, Bolivar Lamounier, Kofi Annan and Wei Jingsheng." [1]
