The great challenge of today is the re-invention of democracy. The political institutions that provide our framework were created before globalization, information- and communications technologies and the growing local diversity.


Our mission is to contribute to the development and dissemination of multilayered democracy at local, state, continental and global levels. Our expertise is the development, design and execution of innovative education.


Legitimate, transparent and efficient democratic governance is essential to take advantage of the growth, creativity and technologies that globalization has provided - and to deal with challenges such as climate change and social inequality.
