Democratic Governance
Democratic Governance

Overview

NDI views the development of effective, democratic, public-sector institutions as a critical component of its mission. It is through improved governance that the benefits of democratic development most directly impact the lives of citizens. Conversely, the inability of public sector institutions to function effectively and democratically undermines the sustainability of democratic reform.

In a rapidly changing world, democratic institutions must become more innovative in adapting to new technology and evolving citizens expectations. Working with legislatures, executive offices, local governments, and good governance advocates, NDI’s governance programs seek to promote effective, 21st century public-sector institutions and processes that operate in a manner consistent with democratic values of transparency, representation, pluralism, and accountability. NDI strengthens democratic institutions by: 1) supporting regional and global peer-to-peer learning; 2) curating communities of practice within the field of governance; 3) helping codify emerging global and regional norms and standards; 4) facilitating collaborative dialogue between government, civil society, and the private sector; and 5) piloting and testing innovative approaches to governance.
