Democracy policies must change with the world in order to better respond to the challenges of the 21st century. This includes experimenting with new democratic practices like citizen assemblies, deliberative fora, digital participation tools as well as the reform of elections and political parties.

We work on democratic innovations worldwide through researching new practices, funding new initiatives and advocating for institutional reform.
