Political Economy of Democracy Promotion

What are the big obstacles to parliamentary and political party strengthening? Our new research project, in partnership with the University of Oxford aims to find out.

The project will utilise the analytical strengths of the University of Oxford’s Department for Politics and International Relations and the experience of WFD over the last ten years to identify key lessons regarding the conditions under which democracy promotion activities are successful, and how such interventions can be improved.
