Our Culture

Our people come from different parts of the world and have diverse backgrounds and cultures. We have a diverse team of more than 40 different nationalities dedicated to democracy building. 

They bring with them a wealth of qualifications and experience, having worked for international organizations, governments, civil society, academia and the private sector.

This global mix of professionals allows for an open environment that is consistent with our mission and values. Recognizing that there is no single model of democracy and that democracy is not an end in itself, we collect good practices around the world and provide advice on the different ways to making democracy better for citizens.
