EPD contributes to advancing the policy debate in Europe from its head office in Brussels. EPD has been involved in this debate as a proactive partner, working in close cooperation with the EU institutions and Member States, as well as with other organisations involved in democracy assistance.

As a knowledge hub, EPD aims to facilitate an exchange of experience and lessons learned amongst practitioners from different sectors of the democracy support community so that they can find common solutions from an inclusive and holistic approach to democracy support.

EPD is conceived as a “Community of practice“. That is, a group of organisations which work together because, by doing so, they can substantially improve the way they operate in the realm of democracy support. This notion does not only apply to EPD as a network and its institutional development, but also to all the actions and partnerships constructed under the EPD banner.

The following organisations have signed a Partnership Agreement with EPD. As per this agreement, they are represented on EPD’s Board of Directors and participate as Partner Organisations in the development and day-to-day activities of the Community of practice.
