Experts working on democracy assistance, human rights and mediation speak about the INSPIRED programme, its methodology, added value and relevance. 

The INSPIRED programme, implemented in Tunisia, Moldova, Kyrgyzstan, Ghana and Morocco through local partners, was focused on fostering support for inclusive reform through multi-stakeholder democratic dialogue. The programme was coordinated by the European Partnership for Democracy (EPD), while it was co-financed by the European Instrument for Democracy and Human Rights (EIDHR), Club de Madrid and the Netherlands Institute for Multiparty Democracy. The Operating Model that was developed through these experiences provides an innovative new tool for facilitating local consensus on reform priorities. It also enables donors to align their aid with local needs more effectively.

The Operating Model is based on three phases; Collective Assessment, Consensus-building and Monitoring and Donor Alignment. Its approach is simultaneously policy, process and results-orientated and ensures local ownership by a wider range of stakeholders in the democratic process.

The INSPIRED Handbook, with a detailed examination of the Operating Model and of the programme’s experiences and lessons learnt from the different country contexts, will be published next month.
