The promotion of democracy is one of the core themes of our work worldwide. We perceive democracy as a socio-political process driven by citizens' active participation and strong democratic institutions. In collaboration with our partners, we are trying to widen the scope for political and social participation and emancipation. Specifically, we aim to strengthen civil society and democratically elected parliaments.
Political and social rights of women and youth are an essential part of the democratization process. Therefore we advocate for the representation of women and youth in political decision making and for an improvement of supportive legislative and political frameworks.
