INSPIRED Operating Model

This Operating Model derives from the Integrated Support Programme for Inclusive Reform and Democratic Dialogue (INSPIRED), financed by the European Instrument for Democracy and Human Rights (EIDHR), and implemented in 14 different countries.

The Model addresses the operational divide between democracy support and the array of instruments aimed at promoting good governance. In particular, it encourages international aid organisations and practitioners to make use of policy dialogue, by enhancing its inclusiveness and putting in place participatory mechanisms that make it more representative and legitimate. Its main assumption is that policies that have been elaborated taking into account different interests and view points are more likely to resist sudden changes in the balance of powers than policies that benefit only a small ruling elite.
