The International Institute for Democracy and Electoral Assistance (IDEA) is an intergovernmental organization with member states from all continents. It has a mandate to support sustainable democracy worldwide. IDEA operates at an interface between those who analyze and monitor trends in democracy and those who engage directly in political reform or act in support of democracy at home and abroad. IDEA works with both new and long-established democracies, helping to develop and strengthen the institutions and culture of democracy. It operates at international, regional and national level, working in partnership with a range of institutions. It also assists countries in building their capacity to develop and strengthen democratic institutions.
