Institute for Representative Government

Since 2003, NDI and the International Republican Institute (IRI) have partnered with the Institute for Representative Government (IRG)—a nonprofit, bipartisan organization established by former Members of Congress—to implement professional exchange programs for legislators from developing democracies. Program participants are provided the opportunity to visit the U.S. and gain greater exposure to the American federal political system through interaction with sitting and former Members of Congress and legislative staff. The programs also provide an opportunity for peer to peer dialogue and exchange, building relationships between legislators from different countries or political parties.
