What we do?
The Directorate General of Democracy (“DGII”) supports the Council of Europe in fields which are vital for the sustainability of democracy: ensuring respect for human dignity without discrimination on the basis of human rights standards; improving the functioning of democratic institutions; and strengthening the democratic competencies of Europe’s citizens and their willingness to engage in the democratic process and promoting respect for diversity in Europe’s societies, in a spirit of solidarity and tolerance, based on the human rights and legal standards of the Council of Europe.
