Democratic design in forms of community participation has risen in prominence in areas around the world where practitioners and scholars have made significant progress in democratizing design and planning practice in one project after another. These practitioners and scholars have also introduced new techniques and approaches that respond to specific issues and contexts that they face. The goals are to provide a forum for democratic designers who might never have known each other to share and discuss their work; and to determine interest in forming a democratic design without borders global network. The first meeting of Democratic Design Without Borders convened at EDRA 46 in Los Angeles. The all-day intensive workshop organized by Jeff Hou, Randy Hester and Henry Sanoff, featured seventeen presentations of community design research, and reflections by activist designers from Asia, Europe and North America. The meeting grew from efforts of multiple groups who share a commitment to culturally suitable, justice seeking and empowering design. The format allowed for an extended time for discussion. The purpose of this second all-day intensive workshop (EDRA 47) engaged practitioners and scholars in roundtable discussions related to democratic design practice in diverse cultural contexts. It was followed by a hands-on participatory design workshop. The purpose of this third half-day intensive workshop (EDRA 50) is to extend the global network and continue the exchange at EDRA by engaging an international audience to focus on democratic design as a continuously evolving practice that can be enriched through sharing and exchange of experiences, both successes and pitfalls through presentations and discussion sessions. We believe it is only through such continued examination that theory and practice in democratic design can continue to advance and flourish. This intensive is intended to engage practitioners and scholars, in roundtable discussions related to their design research practice in diverse cultural environments in Mexico, Russia,
