The International Council for Democracy is an international organization whose stated aim is to uphold and promote democracy and the rule of law both within its member-states and around the world. Founded in 1938, it has 28 member-states and 3 partners. It is often considered a continuation of the Grand Alliance from the Great War.
The International Council for Democracy is an official Community of Nations observer. The two organizations have a history of cooperation. However, the Community of Nations maintains no official bilateral ties with the council. Both bodies are given different powers by their member states. For example, the International Council for Democracy has permission to monitor elections in its member states. The Community of Nations is focused on preventing conflict and upholding international law.
The International Council for Democracy aims to uphold and promote democracy on the international stage. As such, many of its activities seek to bolster existing democracies and assist in the process of democratization in emerging democracies. One of its foremost activities is the organization’s annual Report on Global Democracy. The report assess the status of democracy on an international scale in addition to measuring the state of democracy in x countries, of which x are sovereign states, x are members of the Community of Nations, and x are members of the International Council for Democracy itself. Individual states are evaluated and compared in the report’s National Democracy Index.
Monitoring elections is done through the Office for Elections and Democratic Institutions (OEDI), one of the organizations institutions. Monitors are sent out by OEDI on a short-term or long-term basis. Their deployment spans each phase of the electoral process. The monitors observe the process and report their findings to the OEDI, which in turn reports to the council. The findings are also made public.
