Promoting Democracy and Civic Participation

The objective of the Promoting Democracy and Civic Participation working area is to ensure that democratic processes, institutions and actors in South Africa’s political system are strengthened for the purpose of deepening democracy. This is done by supporting projects that enhance the capacity and the accountability of political mandate bearers in political institutions and the public service as well as projects that promote broad community participation and dialogue to ensure that the concepts and values of social democracy have an influence on the public discourse and the political and socioeconomic development of South Africa.
