The International Institute for Democracy and Electoral Assistance (International IDEA) is an intergovernmental organization established in 1995, by Member States, which aims to support sustainable democracy worldwide and assist in the development of institutions and the culture of democracy. At the interface between research, fieldwork and the donor community, International IDEA provides a forum for dialogue, builds networks of experts, develops training materials and provides strategic advice at the international, regional and national level, cooperating with a range of organizations.
International IDEA’s Constitution Building Programme, together with local, regional and global partners, raises awareness of the role constitution-building processes play in managing conflict and consolidating democracy. The work involves: providing technical assistance to national actors engaged in constitution building; providing knowledge and capacity-building resources that individuals and groups can use to strengthen their participation, in processes of constitution building; facilitating access to lesson learning in comparative contexts so that national, regional and international actors have more options to consider in addressing with constitutional challenges; and servicing a global community of constitution building practitioners through physical and virtual spaces for dialogue.
The closing date for submitting proposals is Tuesday, 21 June.
