David Rosén’s work focuses on the strategic relationships with International IDEA’s Member States, with an emphasis on the institutional governance processes, relations and democracy support policies.
David coordinates the institutional task force on Democracy and Climate Change, which explores how democracies can tackle the climate crisis by leveraging their inherent advantages and overcoming challenges to formulate effective and citizen-owned climate policy agendas. In 2021, this workstream launched the Democracy and the Challenge of Climate Change Discussion Paper on the opportunities and challenges for democracy to effectively address climate change.
David’s previous work experience within International IDEA includes research on constitution building processes, support to the citizen-led democracy assessments and democracy and gender teams. He was been involved in the EU Presidency Project, which focused on aligning the EU democracy support and development policy approaches. David’s work experience at the Department of Government at Uppsala University focused on public opinion research and a cross-institutional collaboration on sustainable energy governance.
