The Democracy Fund
The New Democracy Fund is part of the Danish Foreign Ministry’s Eastern Neighborhood Programme. After a call for proposals in the autumn of 2020, the Danish Foreign Ministry chose the consortium behind The New Democracy fund, which counts the following organisations: Danish Cultural Institute (DCI), the Danish Youth Council (DUF), International Media Support (IMS), 3F – United Federation of Workers in Denmark (3F) and the Confederation of Danish Industry (DI). With a budget of 50 mio. DKK for 2020-2022 the New Democracy Fund aims to strengthen new interregional co-operation and exchange of experience between civil society organisations and cultural, educational and knowledge institutions in Denmark and the Eastern Neighborhood countries Belarus, Ukraine, Moldova, Georgia, Armenia, and Azerbaijan.
