Who?

EU Delegations from across Asia are welcome to participate and share their insights on these topics with their partners from the region. This is an opportunity to meet the new actors promoting democracy through tech tools, and to discuss with colleagues from the region about common problems, emerging trends, possibilities for regional cooperation.

‘Supporting Democracy’ (SD) is an EIDHR-funded programme (managed by DG DEVCO B1) working with EU Delegations to strengthen the role of local civil society in advocating and monitoring democratic accountability.

The seminar is co-organised with the Asian Network for Free Elections (ANFREL), a leading regional network advocating democratic elections in 17 countries.
