Publication Video and Policy Brief

Tuesday 18 September 2012

We are happy to announce the publication of a Policy Brief and the release of Video documentary on our research into the substance of EU democracy promotion.

The Policy Brief illustrates the conceptual haziness of EU international democracy promotion policies and explains why this is problematic. While ongoing reforms should be welcomed, a wider debate on substance could help identify what the EU should support in the future. The EU should also establish a reflective external democracy promotion policy where the assessment of actions on democratic development becomes systematic and is institutionalised.

The Video Documentary is based on a Public Forum where EU democracy promotion was discussed with civil society, the professional field, and the general public, including people from target countries of EU democracy promotion activities.
