This handbook is the final outcome of the EU-funded INSPIRED programme (Integrated Support Programme for Inclusive Reform and Democratic Dialogue). The project focused on facilitating inclusive and participatory policy dialogue in five different countries: Ghana, Moldova, Kyrgyzstan, Morocco and Tunisia. The document addresses the operational divide between democracy support and the array of existing tools and instruments aimed at promoting good governance.

The idea underlying the choice of these target countries was to test the same set of tools and techniques in five very different contexts and to observe what worked and what did not. This is what it has been all about: bringing high-level principles into common use by applying them in different contexts and then drawing lessons from these experiences to turn them into practical guidance. Under the lead of a local partner organisation, one operating in each country, each of these ‘pilot’ projects tackled one specific issue that could be addressed through policy reform: from women’s representation in political life (Ghana) to ethnic minorities and the media (Kyrgyzstan), and from social justice (Tunisia) 21 and free trade agreements (Moldova) to youth involvement within regionalisation policies (Morocco).
