Sweden EU Presidency and the Democracy Agenda

The EU has traditionally been one of the world’s staunchest advocates of democracy, but major changes have affected the global democracy landscape recently. With the support of the Swedish Ministry for Foreign Affairs, International IDEA led an analysis of the EU’s external democracy policy. The project’s recommendations stem from consultations with civil society in several world regions and with EU institutional and EU Member States officials. Their purpose is to inspire future EU democracy policies and discussions during Sweden’s 2023 Presidency of the Council of the EU and beyond.
