Westminster Foundation for Democracy (WFD) believes that we need strong democracies to prosper and to protect our rights and freedoms.
In a democracy, all people – no matter their identities, backgrounds, interests, or religious beliefs – should be able to take part in political life and have a say in the decisions that affect their lives.
Democracy underpins the solutions to the major challenges of our time, from inequality to public health, climate change and rising authoritarianism.
That is why WFD is working to strengthen democracy across the world. Since the fall of the Berlin Wall, we have been helping to make countries' political systems fairer, more inclusive, and more accountable. We do this by working with:
- Political parties
- Electoral bodies
- Civil society
