About The Innovation in Politics Institute
The Innovation in Politics Institute is an international, non-governmental organisation that identifies, develops and implements innovation in politics in order to strengthen democracy in Europe and beyond.
With a Europe-wide network of offices and partner organisations in 21 European countries (Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lebanon, Lithuania, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Poland, Slovakia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the United Kingdom), and together with political leaders at all levels, the institute is building tomorrow’s politics today.
Three cities that are frontrunners in democracy have been shortlisted by the Experts’ Jury in the competition for becoming the first European Capital of Democracy (ECoD). The title will be granted to one of these cities in January 2023 by a Citizens’ Jury of up to 10,000 Europeans.
The European Capital of Democracy’s City Network, which shares expertise on democracy to change our world for the better, celebrates its launch in Vienna.
One of 13 cities from eight countries has the chance to become the very first European Capital of Democracy.
The Innovation in Politics Institute has opened applications for their annual Awards programme, now in its sixth year.
