Democracy, Economy and Sustainability

Migration and movement of people between countries, in particular from the Global South to the Global North, in the third millennium, has deepened the discussions on Democracy, Economy and Sustainability and boosted the theories on the interaction between these three terms.

In many countries, especially in wealthy ones, people are caught up in the speed of life, and extremely competitive lifestyles and these discussions and theories remain just that—deliberations.


Among the politically active diaspora communities, these three terms interact in a more practical pattern where these communities take the responsibilities of freeing their home countries and building democracy, sharing in responsibility toward achieving the SDGs and fighting to survive and not be crushed by poverty which is man-made.


UMBAJA ECONOMIC FORUM is opening the door to more practical directions on investigating the interaction between Democracy, Economy and Sustainability by inviting three former Sudanese ministers who led the Sudanese revolution against the dictator Omar Al Bashir and contributed to knocking him down. They have been jailed and tortured by the dictator and later, tow of them took office in the transitional government that followed Al-Bashir’s removal from power, before they were again dismissed, after the army executed a military coup in October 2021.


Together with our guests from Sudan, we are also inviting guests from different German sectors including the political sphere, NGOs, economics, unions, academics and journalism.


UMBAJA e.V as one of the supporting actors of the Sudanese revolution has a true interest in bringing all potential and interested stakeholders together to dialogue on the relationship and interactions between Democracy, Economy and Sustainability through a very important and crucial question: How can we together transform these discussions and theories into a practical, unique, remarkable and educative intervention that can be realized on the ground.


Through our guiding questions and points that we are raising on the UMBAJA ECONOMIC FORUM on Democracy, Economy and Sustainability (DES) we are aiming to empower more and more migrants for long-term revolutionary acts that lead to building a sustained democracy.
