Mr. Türk defined democracy as a global phenomenon and as a principal feature of the global social change over the past thirty years. In President's words, no one can be doubtful of the democracy's transformational power; its practical aspects and, in particular, its support to elections have become a pertinent international cooperation component. He noted that democracy comes from within and can therefore not be imposed from the outside; however, it can be given assistance at the international level. At the same time, democracy is a very dynamic process where friction occurs between different democracy ingredients. In continuation, M. Türk summarized the main democracy challenges of today.
