Our work centres on analysis and reporting, training and raising public awareness. The belief that people are active participants in public life, not subjects of their governments, guides what we do. We work with local actors to protect and expand our shared democratic space in a polarised world, regardless of political opinions or personal beliefs.
Through our networks of country offices and partners, we are in a unique position to report on developments and to help make improvements on the ground.
Our areas of focus include: digital democracy, local governance, elections, rule of law, constitutions, human rights, and democratic discourse.
