Supporting inclusive national dialogue processes in 5 countries by helping local stakeholders to reach agreements in concrete policy areas, key for their democratic development.
Publicaciones destacadas: INSPIRED Integrated Support Program for Inclusive Reform and Democratic Dialogue was a programme funded by the European Union concretely by the European Instrument for Democracy and Human Rights (EIDHR), which aimed to support inclusive national dialogue processes in 5 countries by helping local stakeholders to reach agreements in concrete policy areas. INSPIRED operates in Moldova, Tunisia, Kyrgyzstan, Morocco and Ghana. It was implemented simultaneously in the 5 countries over a period of 20 months (Sept. 2012 – May 2014).
The programme combined the knowledge and capacities of local partner organizations with the knowledge and capacities of European organizations, namely the Netherlands Institute for Multiparty Democracy (NIMD) and the Club de Madrid, that have a long track record of supporting political dialogue and strengthening leadership capacities of key policy stakeholders. Club de Madrid participation in the project pivoted around the leadership of its membership in providing feedback to local partners in the definition of the roadmaps for policy reform, acting as a sounding board in the definition of civil society’s role in advancing policy change, using its convening power to gather civil society and its access capacity to convey results to EU and local officials.
In a second phase, INSPIRED developed an Operating Model for promoting inclusive policy dialogue and effective donor alignment based on the lessons learned throughout the aforementioned pilot projects.
