The mission of the Office of International IDEA to the European Union is to represent our country programmes and knowledge resources on democracy before influential institutions and to try to impact their decision-making.

In the EU, our primary goals are strengthening political parties for improved democratic governance and addressing the question of how to recapture the energy of our young citizens, so that they can play an increasingly important role in democratic processes.
