By mid-2016, the Westminster Foundation for Democracy will have parliamentary strengthening programmes in about 22 countries and political party programmes in around 40 countries. We have a track record in improving policy, increasing citizen participation, promoting accountability, and bettering representation. But we don’t have a monopoly of knowledge on what works best.
This is why WFD is looking to contribute to public knowledge about effective democracy-strengthening, making the details of our work available to researchers, and funding a post-doctorate research fellow at Oxford University who will take this work forward throughout 2016. But there’s more to it than that. We want others to contribute too.
