2024 International Leaders Forum
2024 International Leaders Forum

NDI is honored to host the 11th International Leaders Forum (ILF) on the sidelines of the Democratic National Convention proceedings in Chicago, Illinois August 19-22, 2024. Every four years since 1984, the Institute convenes senior politicians and policy-makers from around the world to observe an important facet of the American democratic process.

ILF attendees represent a broad spectrum of political thought, hailing from democracies — established and burgeoning — from all corners of the globe. From heads of state, cabinet ministers, ambassadors, and Members of Parliament, to political party officials and leading policymakers. ILF is a unique gathering of thought leaders and influencers shaping democratic institutions, values, and practice.

This global gathering also serves as an opportunity for leaders across diverse ideologies and geographies to build relationships based on their shared experiences, and identify common interests as they address pressing challenges to democratic institutions, values and norms.

Sponsorship opportunities are available. Visit the ILF website for program and sponsorship information.
