Conference / Symposium
Accessing Democracy is a conference organized by the FLAME Center for Legislative Education & Research.

The Conference aims to bring together industry professionals and organizations working towards strengthening and supporting our country's democratic institutions.

With this, we hope to provide a stage for organizations working at a grassroots level and showcase their amazing work. Similarly, we hope to facilitate a stage for people to interact with these organizations and the panelists and become more informed and engaged citizens in our country.

The underlying bedrock of this conference is the importance of open & equitable access to information in a thriving democracy which has inspired our name, 'Accessing Democracy'.

The event will witness comprehensive and holistic discussions and exchange of ideas by featuring distinguished speakers from across various sectors and organizations. These include Uma Mahadevan-Dasgupta, Principal Secretary, Panchayati Raj, Government of Karnataka; Arghya Sengupta; Aditya Prasanna and Naveed Ahmad from Vidhi Centre for Legal Policy; Apar Gupta from Internet Freedom Foundation; and Gaurav Godhwani and Nupur Gawde from CivicDataLab.
