The International Institute for Democracy and Electoral Assistance (International IDEA) is an intergovernmental organization with 34 Member States with the sole mandate to support and advance democracy worldwide. International IDEA contributes to the public debate on democracy and assists in strengthening process, reforms, institutions and actors that build, advance and safeguard democracy, with a focus on electoral processes, constitution-building, democracy assessment, and political participation and representation. Mainstreamed across all of our work is gender and inclusion, conflict sensitivity and sustainable development. International IDEA is one of the most trusted global sources of data and analysis on the health of democracy around the world.
We hope to build on our established experience in knowledge sharing to help in cooperation and collaboration between stakeholders throughout the Summit for Democracy process.
