The promotion of freedom, democracy and respect for human rights are key priorities in Danish development cooperation. Denmark’s strategic priorities for support to democratisation and human rights identify the deepening of democracy and the realisation of human rights, as the two thematic focus areas for Danish engagement.
The purpose of this How to Note is to provide hands-on guidance and inspiration on how to put these strategic priorities into practice in Danish development cooperation.
Regularly, an assessment needs to be conducted of the state of political parties in a country. This analysis is often necessary at the beginning of a political party development program and before the exact focus or target of the program has been determined. NDI’s political party team receives frequent requests for advice on how to conduct a political party baseline assessment and when it is appropriate.
This document is a framework for use when undertaking a baseline assessment of political parties. It provides advice on how to approach the assessment process and outlines a range of areas that should be probed in order to give a balanced picture of the strengths and weaknesses of all of the political parties. This framework document has been used in a number of countries already (including Morocco and Indonesia) and continues to be refined.
This guide is intended to provide practical insight into political party development programming. Like earlier editions, it attempts to address why political party development is important, how party programs can be conducted and how to tailor projects to specific political environments. Read more
