Where we work
NDI works on five continents with political parties, governments, parliaments and civic groups to establish and strengthen democratic institutions and practices. The Institute uses a multinational approach that reinforces the message that while there is no single democratic model, certain core principles are shared by all democracies. That philosophy has been applied in more than 130 countries since NDI’s founding in 1983. More information about NDI's individual country programs can be found by clicking on the map above.
