A. Background
Democracy is a consciously established system generated by the knowledge, skill, and commitment of all citizens working together to achieve societal prosperity. Therefore, to build democracy in Indonesia aligning with the constitution is one way of showing dedication to its citizens. Signs of a transition to democracy include an efficient political bureaucracy, and a lessening of conflict among the elite. When these factors are managed effectively, then citizens will be the driving force of democracy in Indonesia.

To strengthen democracy, civic interests of citizens must combine with systematic efforts to build a social system of political and democratic values. There are three stages of the effort to build democracy, and the first is the development of democratic institutions. Second, a state must create social conditions and individuals who support the realization of democratic goals. Third, the social structure and political culture must reflect democratic ideals. One of the many actors supporting these development stages is an engaged civil society. This focus is reflected in the mission of many organizations, but in order to effectively channel this desire, strong civic leadership is required. Democratic leaders are capable of moving individuals and civil society to commit to the values of democracy and the rule of law, so fairness becomes paramount to the political system.

Within this context, we must emphasize the importance of education as one instrument for building democratic values through the establishment and development of human capacity. Indonesia Civic Education for Future Leaders (CEFIL) offers the chance for beginner, intermediate, and advanced leaders to engage in civic training. .

Demokrasi adalah seperangkat sistem yang dihasilkan secara sadar melalui pengetahuan, keterampilan dan komitmen setiap orang (warga negara) untuk mencapai kehidupan bersama yang sejahtera. Oleh karena itu, membangun demokrasi di Indonesia yang selaras dengan konstitusi adalah sebuah bentuk dedikasi warga negara.

Sejalan dengan pemikiran diatas, pasca reformasi, Indonesia tengah melakukan transformasi dan transisi menuju masyarakat demokratis. Tanda-tanda umum masa transisi demokrasi adalah dinamika politik warga negara yang cepat, kompetisi dan konflik di kalangan elite. Jika semua dikelola dengan baik maka dinamika politik warga negara akan menjadi penggerak bagi kuatnya demokrasi di Indonesia. Untuk memperkokoh demokrasi, dinamika politik warga negara perlu dibarengi dengan upaya-upaya yang sistematis untuk membangun sistem sosial – politik dan nilai-nilai yang demokratis. Ada tiga tahapan upaya membangun nilai demokrasi, pertama, pengembangan institusi yang demokratis. Kedua, menciptakan kondisi sosial dan individu-individu yang mendukung terwujudnya demokrasi. Ketiga, mewujudkan struktur sosial dan kultur politik yang demokratis.

Salah satu pelaku atau aktor pendukung tahapan pembangunan nilai demokrasi adalah masyarakat sipil (civil society). Hal ini tercermin berdasarkan visi – misi yang dimiliki organisasi masyarakat sipil (civil society organization). Agar visi yang ditegaskan oleh organisasi masyarakat sipil tercapai dan menjadi orientasi dalam kehidupan bernegara maka masyarakat sipil membutuhkan kepemimpinan. Kepemimpinan tersebut adalah kempemimpinan demokratis yang mampu menggerakkan individu dan masyarakat sipil untuk berkomitmen pada nilai-nilai dan penegakkan demokrasi sehingga berpengaruh pada sistem sosial dan politik yang lebih adil.

Dalam konteks ini, pendidikan dianggap sebagai salah satu instrument untuk membangun nilai-nilai demokrasi melalui pembinaan dan pengembangan kapasitas manusia melalui pembelajaran Civic Education for Future Indonesia Leaders (CEFIL), mulai tingkat basic, intermediate dan advance. CEFIL memiliki visi untuk membangun masyarakat sipil yang berorientasi dan mendorong transformasi sosial. Visi merupakan jawaban atas berbagai tantangan kepemimpinan di masa depan Indonesia, yaitu ; (1) pengembangkan karakter kepemimpinan yang memiliki daya tahan, daya juang dan daya tawar untuk menginisiasi transformasi sosial, (2) melahirkan pemimpin masyarakat sipil yang memiliki komitmen untuk melindungi hak-hak minoritas, (3) pengembangkan kepemimpinan masyarakat sipil yang berorientasi pada citizen rights, (4) pembangunan kesadaran pemimpin untuk mampu belajar pada kearifan sejarah bangsa.

Sedangkan isu strategis yang dimunculkan dalam pelatihan adalah masa depan pemimpin masyarakat sipil dalam kekuasaan politik, bidang sosial-ekonomi dan budaya. Semua isu ini dikemas dalam diskusi (ahli, kelompok dan pleno), analisis dan pengembangan agenda aksi sebagai gerakan alternatif untuk pemberdayaan masyarakat.

Secara khusus CEFIL ditujukan bagi aktivis organisasi masyarakat sipil, dengan harapan supaya para partisipan nantinya mampu memberikan wahana yang subur bagi munculnya pemimpin yang mempunyai orientasi pada masyarakat sipil, memiliki kualitas yang handal, serta memiliki kemampuan pengorganisasian yang memadai untuk melakukan dan mengelola perubahan.
