Democracy and Development

Our political mission is reflected in the diverse types of support we provide to citizens to help them achieve their democratic aspirations, as well as in cooperation with numerous organizations and figures active in public life. Through various programmes, we strive to promote and cultivate the wide array of values that stem from democratic culture. For us, these values are human rights, democratic participation and action, peace policy, civic responsibility in facing the past and contemplating the future, European integration and values, and providing support to socially marginalized groups. Another key aspect of our work, intertwined in all our operations, is the promotion of gender democracy. We firmly believe that our democratic endeavors will assist in breathing life into these values and, together with our partners, spur the creation of sustainable development in its fullest sense.
