Democracy Reporting International is a non-partisan, independent, not-for-profit organisation registered in Berlin. Democracy Reporting International promotes political participation of citizens, accountability of state bodies and the development of democratic institutions world-wide. Democracy Reporting International helps support local ways of promoting the universal right of citizens to participate in the political life of their country, as enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) and the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR).
Democracy Reporting International’s work is carried out by an international network of experienced associates, each of whom have worked in democratic governance and human rights for 10 to 20 years, often in senior positions.
In April 2018, Democracy Reporting International joined the UN Global Compact. This voluntary initiative aims at businesses, NGOs and other organisations to implement universal sustainability principles and to take steps to further UN goals. Democracy Reporting International intends to support the ten principles of the UN Global Compact on human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption by implementing them in internal policies and mainstreaming all aspects of the work to conform to these principles.
