NDI has supported the advancement of democracy in nearly every corner of every continent, monitoring elections, training political leaders, supporting civic engagement, promoting opportunities for women and helping build democratic institutions. Every country is different, and embarks on its own unique path to a democratic outcome. But throughout our 35 year history, certain truths come up again and again – lessons that we apply to all our programs.
