Democracy International’s Daniela Vancic
Barack Obama Is My Political Inspiration
Daniela Vancic is the European program manager at Democracy International. She is an expert on the European Citizens’ Initiative and is the co-author of Complementary Democracy: The Art of Deliberative Listening. Before sitting on a panel for the Zócalo event “Are Elected Presidents Bad for Democracy?”—presented in partnership with Democracy International and Metropolitan Autonomous University for the Global Forum for Modern Direct Democracy 2023—she joined us in our traveling green room to talk tacos, the Obamas, and our shared democratic future.
