Danish Institute for Parties & Democracy and our projects

The Institute for Parties and Democracy (DIPD) was established in 2011 with the support of the Danish Social Democrats with the purpose of strengthening and extending the Danish support for democracy worldwide. Through a direct support of political parties, the Social Democrats achieved a new channel for advancement of democracy, solidarity and equal opportunities around the world. We seized the opportunity and initiated democracy-enhancing projects. The Danish Social Democrats are engaged in projects in cooperation with Social Democratic parties in Burkina Faso, Swaziland and regionally in Asia.


The Social Democratic party is involved in three projects financed by DIPD:

Swaziland - Swazi Democratic Party

Burkina Faso - People's Movement for Progress (MPP)
SOCDEM Asia – The Philippines, Nepal and Myanmar


We are always looking for new volunteers for our projects.
