What we do

Eight Areas of Action

A Democratic Association

We bring together democratic associations at its General Assembly. This body adopts overall planning, elects and discharges board members and follows good governance procedures. The board supervises the work of the director, who manages the Secretariat. Board and staff work together in a Finance-, Member-, and Policy Committee and meet at least 3 times a year.
