Political Economy of Democracy Promotion

What are the big obstacles to parliamentary and political party strengthening? Our research project aims to find out.

The project combines the analytical strengths of academic researchers with the practical experience of Westminster Foundation for Democracy. It will identify when democracy promotion activities are most successful, and examine how democracy promotion can be improved.

This project is in collaboration with the International Development Department at the University of Birmingham and formerly the Department for Politics and International Relations at the University of Oxford.
