The Institute for Democracy, founded in 1986, is a center of expertise, specialized in the field of political engineering. It aims at promoting a better understanding of the concept of ‘democracy’ and to recommend the institutions that are most in line with the democratic model, and for this reason the most effective.

Independent from public authorities, the Institute provides technical assistance in countries where the process of democratization is on-going and it contributes to public debate in Western countries, whose institutions are still very imperfect.
