Mission Statement

The European Partnership for Democracy (EPD) is a non-profit organisation supporting democracy worldwide. It comprises thirteen European civil and political society organisations from eleven EU Member States present in Africa, Asia, Europe, the Middle East and Latin America.

Located at the heart of the EU district in Brussels, EPD has established itself as a key player on EU democracy support, both vis-à-vis the EU Institutions and the member states, as well as the wider democracy support community (experts, CSOs, donors). Through innovative and collaborative methodologies based on the development of effective partnerships, EPD facilitates the exchange of knowledge and good practices around the world while advocating for a stronger presence of democracy support on the European Union’s agenda.

The Multi-annual Strategy for the period 2016-2019 was approved by the EPD General Assembly in July 2016.
