We work to improve the evidence base for democracy support as a go-to source for research in Europe. Improving this evidence base is vital for progress in the impact of actual policies and programmes. In our work, we investigate some of the most pressing challenges to democracies worldwide.
The European Democracy Hub is our main research space. Our publications of the past few years have had a strong focus on democratic institutions and democratic innovations outside the West, with a view to stimulating democratic renewal in Europe.
Your one-stop-shop for democracy research
The European Democracy Hub acts as a hub for expertise on European democracy support, bringing together analysts and policymakers. The Hub serves as a resource to accompany the designing, implementation, monitoring, evaluation, and learning of EU and member state democracy support policies.
