Democratization in the Maldives

The Atlantic Council’s South Asia Center invites you to a discussion with Maldivian Foreign Minister Abdulla Shahid. Maldives’ transition to democracy has been a challenging process since it took a drastic turn in 2008. A decade later the country still continues to face challenges in its pursuit to preserve the gains made.

On February 19, 2019, H.E. Abdulla Shahid will discuss challenges as well as foreign policy goals for the island nation. The discussion will be held from 4:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. at the Atlantic Council, followed by a reception. The event is open to press and on the record.
