At the Netherlands Institute for Multiparty Democracy, we believe that democracy can only thrive when all voices are heard, and inclusive and respectful dialogue between politicians, political parties, civil society, and citizens is crucial to achieving that goal.
We build all our democracy support programs around that core belief, ensuring we help empower everyone – from traditionally marginalized groups to established politicians – to play their role in political life and work for the common good of their country. Working across five key thematic areas, we focus on dialogue and trust building. Whether it is a formal dialogue platform, an informal gathering, a Democracy School class or an internal training session, our intervention strategies are aimed at bringing people together to collaborate.
