What is The New Democracy Fund?
In response to democratic challenges in the Eastern Neighbourhood Countries, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Denmark has established The New Democracy Fund.
The fund will support new and existing civil society partnerships in regard to strengthening democratic development in the Eastern Neighbourhood Countries.
The New Democracy Fund is built on dialogue, co-operation, and aims to create new and strengthen the existing relations between civil society organisations in the Eastern Neighbourhood Countries and Denmark.
