Best Practice in Politics

We curate exemplary political work that successfully tackles today’s most pressing issues, from education to economy, from ecology to human rights, from democracy to coping with Covid-19. The initiatives presented here come from all political and regional levels and from across the democratic party spectrum in Europe and the MENAT region. What they all have in common: they show that democracy works.

This platform is a hub of tried and tested best practices in politics. We invite you to use it for research, analysis and scaling – for a Europe-wide exchange and the co-creative development of innovative politics for today and tomorrow.
