International IDEA works with electoral management bodies and civil society organizations, including youth and Indigenous Peoples, to create space for citizens to engage in the democratic process and constitutional reform efforts at regional and country levels.
We work to foster political dialogues that protect and restore democracy in a region that includes established and emerging democracies, states with single-party rule, and military dictatorships.
International IDEA engages with academic institutions, national and subnational parliaments to strengthen the quality of democratic development and improve inclusion and representation. International IDEA also produces publications, tools and curriculums and facilitates political dialogues for democratic outcomes.
International IDEA works from our regional office in Canberra, Australia, and holds offices in Bhutan, Myanmar and Nepal. We also have activities in Fiji, Melanesia, Mongolia, Philippines and Indonesia.
