What we do

To achieve International IDEA’s mission, and in pursuit of its vision, International IDEA has defined workstreams to align with the challenges and opportunities of the democracy landscape and the framework of the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals agenda.


We develop comparative knowledge, assist in democratic reform, and influence policies and politics, focusing on six workstreams: electoral processes, constitution-building, democracy assessments, and political participation and representation, climate change and digitalization. We also address issues of gender equality and inclusion, and money in politics.
