In this retrospective of our work from 2012 to 2017, we present our efforts at setting the global democracy agenda and providing support to democracies in transition and consolidation.
We have produced a significant body of knowledge products that advance the discourse on democracy and its finer aspects in the United Nations, the European Union and democracies around the world. Our knowledge helps inform democratic norms such as how elections are conducted, how constitutions are built and how more women can participate in politics.
We have also provided support to democracies in transition and consolidation in Africa, Asia and the Pacific, Europe and Latin America and the Caribbean. The support that we provide, on invitation, ranges from partnerships with electoral management bodies to building the capacities of women and young people for more inclusive political participation.
Democracy is a universal human aspiration that needs to be nurtured and sustained. Through this report, we share with you our ongoing contributions towards our common aspiration.
