Improving education on authoritarianism and preparing recommendations for EU democracy support

This project is co-funded by the European Union through the Erasmus+ programme. The project focuses on improving general education on authoritarianism and preparing recommendations for EU foreign policy stakeholders regarding democracy support. MORDOR has two main goals. First, it aims to improve and strengthen the study and education of dictatorships worldwide by creating an encyclopedia and other didactic materials. Second, it plans to make recommendations for EU foreign policy, concerning its democracy support strategies, capabilities and vision. We also develop smaller reports, infographics and analysis on EU democracy promotion activities. It is this second part that EPD is most involved in, given our long-standing experience with democracy support policy and programmes. You can find more information here, on the project website.
