On 18 June 2019, EPD was proud to present its findings and recommendations on European democracy support to the Finnish government, EPD members and democracy support practitioners and academics at the Political Party Peer Network Conference in Helsinki.

Over the last 18 months, EPD and its members conducted a participatory review of European democracy support. This review process has included several stand-alone papers on democracy support and numerous multi-stakeholder meetings with academics, activists, civil society, donors, experts, policy-makers and think-tanks.

Three questions have guided the research:

  • How successful has European democracy support been until now?
  • How to consolidate and enhance European democracy support today?
  • What key features could a new democracy support policy be built upon?

There were some things we expected to find in this review and there were also some surprises.

You can read the summary of the findings and key recommendations here:

This executive summary will be followed by a more detailed final paper, as well as country case studies on European democracy support in Tunisia, Armenia and Honduras.

Let us know what you think!
