Research Network External Democracy Promotion (EDP)

Solveig Richter: The research network 'External Democracy Promotion' (EDP) brings together political scientists from Germany who work at the interface between international relations and comparative political science. Our common interest lies in the area of cross-border activities of states, non-state actors and international organisations working to establish, improve or defend democracy in third countries. The EDP Network is a collaborative project of six partner institutions: the two Leibniz Institutes Hessische Stiftung Friedens- und Konfliktforschung (HSFK) and Wissenschaftszentrum Berlin für Sozialforschung (WZB), the German Development Institute (DIE), and three universities (Erfurt, Konstanz, Lüneburg). The University of St. Gallen is an associated member.
