Work Plan 2015

The Community of Democracies works tirelessly to protect and support the democratic principles enshrined in the Warsaw Declaration. In its mission statement, the Community vows to:

  • support democratic transition and consolidation worldwide,
  • help in the implementation of principles of democracy and human rights,
  • assist in the development and strengthening of democratic institutions,
  • defend civil society,
  • advance broad-based participation,
  • give a voice to those working for democracy. 

In light of such crucial circumstances, the Governing Council of the Community of Democracies approved the Community’s work plan for 2015, designed to fit the needs and challenges that democracy faces in our times. The Council endorsed three major priorities: enhancing intergovernmental cooperation, increasing democracy assistance, and enabling multi-stakeholder dialogue.
 
Under these three priorities, activities of the Community of Democracies during 2015 aim to:

  • strengthen the democratic voice within the United Nations;
  • support and promote regional democracy and human rights instruments;
  • enable old and new democracies to support democracy;
  • assist emerging democracies and transitioning states;
  • provide assistance to democracy actors;
  • support civil society organizations;
  • advance multi-stakeholder dialogue on democracy-related policies;
  • create sustainable platforms for multi-stakeholder dialogues on democracy; and
  • deepen and expand multi-stakeholder initiatives to support, defend, and sustain the work of civil society worldwide.
The Community of Democracies will meet these aims through a variety of programs, projects and initiatives, some of them continuing from previous years, and some to be launched during the upcoming year. Developments from all initiatives will be reported on the Community of Democracies website and social media.
