UNDP-EU: Democratic Governance
Credible, transparent and fair elections and functioning democratic parliaments are two pillars of a democratic governance system in any country around the world. The partnership between the EU and UNDP is particularly strong in these two areas.
In addition, the partnership spans from promoting countries to advance on human rights, to ensuring that citizens can participate in their societies and that they have equal access to justice. It helps countries manage their borders, train the police and judges. To ensure that local communities have a say in their development the partnership assists countries with decentralization and local governance.
An integral part of UNDP-EU joint initiatives is ensuring that also women participate on equal terms and that their rights are respected.
