We are committed to supporting active citizens, responsive governments, and engaged civil society and political organizations to achieve a more peaceful, democratic world. By developing and using new knowledge, tools, and approaches, we change people’s lives and improve development assistance in fundamental ways. To do this, Democracy International works in four core practice areas: Politics, Governance, Peace & Resilience, and Learning.
DI supports political systems around the world to be responsive, inclusive, and competitive. We support election administration and reform; domestic and international election observation; political party, and legislative strengthening; civic and voter education; political empowerment of marginalized groups; civil society advocacy and strengthening related to articulating interests; media strengthening and freedom related to political processes; and protection of fundamental political rights, especially in societies with closing political space.
DI makes politics work by helping:
- Citizens and communities articulate their interests
- Parties and candidates represent citizen interests and compete for support
- Institutions ensure fair, legitimate, and resilient political competition
- Marginalized citizens and minority groups participate equitably in political processes
A core reason for DI’s founding was to improve democratic elections and political transitions programs. To make politics better, DI also serves as a thought leader and provides analytical services, including specialized research, assessments, and evaluations.
